The City of London is a relatively tiny area of London measuring just 1.12 sq mi.
Colloquially referred to as The Square Mile for exactly that reason it is primarily a business area, housing around 10,000 residents in total.
Nevertheless demand for the few properties available is high, with towering skyscrapers offering fantastic views across London.
The City is not all about business however, with plenty of restaurants and bars catering to its workers’ needs.
The imposing St Paul’s Cathedral is a real draw, and overlooks the sleek One New Change shopping complex.
The Barbican Centre’s brutalist architecture houses Europe’s largest performing arts centre, hosting world-class music, theatre and art.
The Square Mile also has access to several tube lines as well as suburban rail links.
