Richard Rogers' 1986 building is now slowly being dwarfed by the growing number of skyscrapers which are springing up and dominating the City skyline. Visit by invitation only.

A day in central London. Lloyds of London is nearby Liverpool Street Station and is surrounded by New architecture of buildings. The stunning building is surrounded by shops and is one of the Landmark in London. Many new buildings are being built around , but their are many shops and restaurants with stunning views.

A once in a lifetime experience! Having been in aviation for all my life and being exposed to the holy grail of insurance, the Lloyds visit was a highlight of a very short trim to London. Suggest it to anyone that ever has the opportunity to visit this magnificent building. The inspiration from Lord Nelson is immense and overwhelming.

The building itself is worth seeing. A Bowellism architecture example, all the services for the building, such as pipes, ducts and lifts, are located on the outside of the building. The building was designed by Richard Rogers--same person that did the Pompidou Center in Paris. Inside is the great insurance market--but not much to see or do unless you got... More

Lloyds of London is the main building of the Lloyds Bank and it is located in the centre of the City in London. It is located in a zone, where there are a lot of beautiful skyscrapers and some of them more beautiful than Lloyds building. Regrettably it is not possible to go up in this building, because it is... More

It is getting harder and harder to see the iconic Lloyds of London building due to the masses of other tall buildings being built in the area. The general public can only admire the building the outside and then it is difficult to get a photo of the building. Tours are available (at £12 pp) but they are restricted to... More

I've worked here since 1997. Great original building. Do the tour and see Nelson support, go right to the top and look down the atrium. Sadly getting hemmed in by Broker buildings, the CheeseGrater, the Gherkin, whatever the Willis building is nicknamed. Also the WalkieTalkie. Walk around Leadenhall Market before the Tower of London and maybe Borough Market & Southwark... More

Lloyds of London is still considered the insurance centre of London, if not the world. When the present building opened there was a famous quote stating that, whilst Lloyds insured oil rigs, was there any reason for the building to be designed as one. Now 30 years later, it's part of the fabric of the city and listed to boot.... More

Visited Lloyds for work and had a guided tour, the building its self is incredible and the guided tour was very informative, from the top floors the views over London are amazing, if you get chance it's defiantly worth a visit, the place is full of history and generally really interesting.

Staying in City of London

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
