Explore City of London

Called the Square Mile, or the City, this two-mile-square riverside neighborhood has over a 2,000-year-old history — pretty much making it the most quintessential part of London you could find. Cast iron dragons guard the entrances to this major financial hub as commuters flock to skyscrapers named Cheesegrater, Gherkin, and Walkie-Talkie. A filmmaker’s delight, its famous sites include the Tower of London castle and prison, London Bridge, and the Old Bailey courthouse. A must-eat around here? Fish and chips of course.
