About The City
The City was once the nucleus of Roman London. The moated Tower of London defines the City's eastern edge, and you can follow the Roman wall 2.8 miles from Tower Hill to the Museum of London at Aldersgate. Alternatively, follow your nose from Monument past Leadenhall Market (where a Roman basilica once stood) to theatrical St. Paul's in redeveloped Paternoster Square, where crowds surge across the Millennium Bridge. The best views of St. Paul's dome are from Smithfields Market: by day a thriving meat market, at night a fashionable drinking and dining destination for Barbican-goers. In the City, the Royal Exchange faces off with the Bank of England, where the museum offers crash courses in finance, history and politics.

Historic yet hip as you please, London trades tabloid gossip during intermission at West End theater premieres, works up a fierce appetite for East End curry at Tate Modern art shows, and crooks its pinky over high tea at Claridge's before trying on Central Saint Martins' latest punk-chic for London Fashion Week.
