Why not explore the nearby areas of City, Barbican, Clerkenwell, Southwark, Aldgate, Spitalfields, Shoreditch, Borough, Holborn and Islington

"Ironically, more people have lost their lives either jumping or falling from the Monument to the Great Fire of London than died in the fires."

The majesty of St Paul's Cathedral's architecture and the historical significance is amazing...

Josh Walsh

I love the buzz of the City at dusk and the stunning architecture along the cityscape. It really makes me excited to live in London.
