About the City of London
The City of London, commonly referred to as "The City", is the business / financial centre of London.
Situated east of Westminster and immediately north of the River Thames, this "Square Mile" has only 8000 residents but in excess of 300,000 workers. Consequently, it can be very quiet at the weekends and it is very possible to get a great London City hotel deal due to the lack of business travellers.
Dating back to Roman times, this area was then walled and parts of this "London Wall" can still be seen near the entrance to Tower Hill tube station. Following the Great Fire of London, the expansion out of the city westwards began.
Within the City are several sub districts, or "wards". The present boundaries of the City are marked by black bollards with the City's emblem, and at main entrances, a grander monument, with a dragon facing outwards, can be seen.
