The City of London lies inside London itself and refers to a specific area whose boundaries have remained unchanged since the Middle Ages. These days it is a small but very important area within the great metropolis of London Town. The City has it’s own flag, motto and coat of arms and is referred to as The City, City, or the Square Mile. This is London’s historical heart. It is also a major business and financial centre and along with New York is the financial capital of the world. The London Stock Exchange, Lloys of London and the Bank of England are all based here. The Bank of England is fondly known as "The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street."
East London is full of interesting contrasts - vibrant and multicultural, trendy and traditional, affluent and gritty. It has a wonderful and diverse range of people from bohemian artists, monied financiers to the original 'locals' i.e. Cockney Londoners, with their famous and much-loved rhyming slang. If you need to brush up on yours, rhyming slang dictionaries can be purchased in all good London bookshops, and that's no pork pie!
Aldgate was in past times the eastern gateway from the City to Whitechapel and East London via London Wall. London's oldest synagogue was founded here in the 1600's and it was also the original site of a famous bell foundry in the area, founded in the 1400, which supplied bells to churches in the City.
Just on the edge of the City is Tower Hill, which is close enough to all of the must-see London landmarks, making it very convenient to stay in. It is, however, still removed enough from the hustle and bustle and allows you to mingle with the locals and feel like a Londoner. Liverpool Street Station has excellent train and underground connections for easy access to the west end and Central London.
Once located in or near to this richly historic and ancient part of London, you will find plenty to keep you entertained, amazed, and educated! For example: The Tower of London, Tower Bridge and Traitors Gate, The Monument (built to commemorate the Great Fire of London in 1666), and London's Roman Wall. Or walk across the river Thames, as the South Bank offers fabulous attractions such as HMS Belfast, the Design Museum, Borough Market, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and of course, Tate Modern. There are numerous restaurants and traditional London pubs to cater for all tastes and budgets including St Katherine’s Dock which offers a peaceful residential oasis to slow down and watch the yachts in the marina.
Also nearby are the popular and fashionable areas of Whitechapel, Shoreditch and Hoxton. Much loved by locals for their lively local street markets - Columbia Road flower market, Brick Lane, Broadway Market, Spitalfields and Pettycoat Lane - plus vibrant night life offering pop up restaurants, music venues, bars and renowned galleries and museums. Whitechapel, of course, continues to fascinate visitors and locals not least for it's Jack the Ripper connections. There are still several pubs open today that were around in those terrible Ripper years, The Ten Bells and The Blind Beggar, for example. The Whitechapel Art Gallery is also worth a visit.
