City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile

“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
