Explore the Square Mile and succumb to its charm of ancient history and modernism. Soaring modern glass towers stand side-by-side with medieval churches and the area's Roman and civic heritage still remains very much in evidence. Explore London's Square Mile introduces you to the district's many facets: from the pomp and pageantry of the City of London Corporation to its longstanding association with the print and newspaper industry, and its popularity with moviemakers as a backdrop for many films. Fabulous labyrinthine alleyways, narrow streets and unusual street names like Poultry, Bread Street and Cheapside all add to the appeal of the Square Mile making it an area you really should not miss! Today London's Square Mile is a major global financial hub, the Square Mile was once the very heart of Roman London. Sections of its historic Roman walls still stand and exquisite Roman mosaic floors, pottery, sculpture and jewellery can be seen in the city's museums. Come here to experience a weekday recital in a City church, or take delight in breathtaking views from one of the sky-high cocktail bars or restaurants. Throughout the Square Mile you will also discover delightful gardens, Dickensian taverns, theatres, art galleries, museums and shops.
