Neighbourhood

The City of London is one of the most exciting and fastest growing cultural districts in the capital. Come and explore why The City is raising the bar.

London’s most historic district has entered a new chapter. No longer is the square mile a space reserved for the traditional ‘establishment’ and financial infrastructure. The City has become a destination in its own right.

Curious? Us too.

Slowly, with stealth and style the City is reinventing itself and attracting a variety of businesses, from digital start-ups, co-working spaces and online service providers to global retail brands, gaming developers, media and data companies and international publishers.

Yet, the City, with its huge global appeal, continues to reinvent itself, not just to remain at the centre of business, but to establish itself as a genuine cultural, environmental and lifestyle hub.

Flourishing new bars, restaurants, cultural hotspots, hotels, fitness concepts, retail and members clubs are all contributing to this new, and well-deserved, reputation that the City has and is continuously developing.

Everyday, Something New.

From Soho-based restaurants and bars such as Bob Bob Ricard and Temper opening posts in the city, to new and up and coming foodie spots like Eataly, St Leonards and Brat choosing the City to launch their concepts, the City of London’s dining scene is thriving.

Culture

Londonium was founded by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago, and take a guess where they planted their first settlement?

From its foundations, culture in the city has always been a London juxtaposition of the old and the new. From underground lost rivers, Roman temples, and hidden gargoyle embellished courtyards to graffiti-covered alley ways, pop up contemporary art galleries and the sculpture in the city initiative – the City has every canvas covered.
