About The City of London

City of London Offices

From the Roman settlement in 1AD until the Middle Ages, the City of London was almost London in its entirely. The modern local governing body – called the City of London Corporation – is probably the oldest elected local authority in the world, with records showing its existence from 1067, a year after the Norman Conquest.

Now the City of London is a small, yet vitally important component part of modern greater London.

Also known as The Square Mile, the City of London is basically the eastern part of the central London business district, located to the east of Holborn, which some call Midtown. The City is the financial centre of London and hence, the financial centre of the UK itself. Notably it houses the Bank of England and the London Stock Exchange. Although many large financial bodies have moved east to Canary Wharf, the City of London continues to be home to financial services, the insurance industry and many of the professions. Many of these businesses are housed in high grade air-conditioned London city offices.

Ordinary quality city office space – which can be quite modest – are also available for rent at lower costs. This enables vital, smaller support companies – who interact with the large corporate occupiers on a daily basis – to rent City of London offices.

These days, start-ups and established businesses alike are more and more likely to choose flexible, serviced office space. Like the rest of the capital, serviced offices in the City of London have radically altered the market in recent years – and you’ll find some stunning serviced office space here. Shared, co-working office space is also now available in the City for dynamic companies who prioritise networking and flexibility. Temporary meeting rooms also provide huge flexibility to small businesses.  Combined with a London City virtual office, start ups can immediately have a presence and a prestigious business address without the overhead costs of permanent physical space.

Communications in the City of London are very good indeed. National rail stations Cannon Street, Moorgate, Fenchurch Street, Liverpool Street are all within a short walking distance of the heart of the City of London.

Along with Bank tube station, Liverpool Street and Moorgate tube stations are all located very centrally within the financial district.

Liverpool Street station services Greater Anglia – including the Stansted Express – the fastest route between Stansted Airport and Central London. Trains depart every 15 minutes and take 47 minutes to or from Stansted.

Docklands Light Railway at Bank Station connects the City to Canary Wharf.

There’s been a massive amount of redevelopment with the Square Mile. Whilst a lot of the period properties remain, behind the period facades you’ll find redeveloped modern offices. The overall impression is of many, very impressive. A host of new tall commercial buildings have been built in the City of London over the past few decades, some with silly, but affectionate nicknames: The Gherkin (30 St Mary Axe), the Cheesegrater (Leadenhall Building) and the Walkie Talkie (20 Fenchurch Street) with its spectacular Sky Garden . Other famous buildings in the City include the Lloyd’s Building, Heron Tower, Tower 42 and the Barbican.

Modern commercial properties sit alongside far older City of London architecture, such as Christopher Wren’s St Paul’s Cathedral (re-built after the Great Fire of London destroyed much of the area in 1666), Goldsmiths’ Hall, Guildhall, Mansion House, Leadenhall Market and the Bank of England itself.
