The place to come to learn all about the Square Mile, the heritage of its built environment; its present offer as a world class business centre; its unique collection of cultural institutions and its exciting, vibrant future.

​The City Centre Gallery | Mon - Sat 10am - 5pm

Featuring a series of exhibitions and installations, The City Centre documents the make-up of the City - it's cultural like; the business community; its places and spaces; the way it is run today and its plans for the future.

The City Centre Model Exhibition | Fri - Sat 10am - 5pm

The City Centre is home to the City of London's official architectural model of the Square Mile (pictured above). This state of the art 1:500 scale interactive model allows a rare birds-eye view panorama detailing every existing building as well as those with planning permission granted for the next 10 years.

It provides a fascinating glimpse into the future of London's rapidly growing skyline. Developed over the last 30 years, the model is a unique example of the history of model-making from craftsmanship in wood to laser cutting and 3D printing.
