The City refers to the historic core of London, the boundaries of which have hardly changed since the Middle Ages, and even parts of the original Roman wall, which pre-date these medieval city limits by centuries, still stand at various sites. While a little effort is required to hunt out these historic ruins, an armorial and legendary stone dragon, further demarcating its territory, can be found on every road leading into the City.
Nowadays the City is synonymous with the multinational financial institutions residing within its 1.12 sq miles of land (hence it's also being known as The Square Mile) and ranks above New York as the leading centre for global finance.
And while the sense of progress and power emanating from such world-defining institutions is almost palpable, it is through the uniquely historic atmosphere, aesthetic and character that the district truly lives.
The City's wonderfully varied architecture - beautifully juxtaposing antiquity and modernity in perfect visual harmony - is central to such character, and our London lettings agency for The City makes the most of this with a portfolio of residential properties befitting our remarkable Centre.

The area is well served by a rich selection of shops, restaurants and hotels and the transport network, is as you'd expect, second to none; connecting the City with all parts of London, the region and beyond. Tube stations include Bank, St Paul's and Chancery Lane.
Some of the UK's finest learning institutions are found in the City and include the prestigious St Paul's Cathedral School, Charterhouse Square School and of course City of London, three of the foremost independent schools in the country. Kings College London and London School of Economics offer university students from all over the world the chance of first-class higher learning.
The amenities of the City are superlative, yet are the near magical and visceral sense of both history and progress which abound, and can be experienced with a simple stroll along its many majestic avenues. To mention one building, monument or street of note is to neglect one other, such is the timeless splendor of this part of the Capital, and so we can only recommend the City as your future address in order to fully explore the very point of origin of the whole of London itself.
