We had never walked this area and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We hit this market area at lunchtime and oh my, the stockbrokers were out in droves along with the office workers and bankers. I was amazed how packed all of the numerous restaurants were with the exception of the really expensive ones. There are a lot of super high... More

I wanted to lunch here and skipped it. First of all, much of it is exposed to . . . well, rain. Do not recommend it for tourists. Most people there seemed to be from local office buildings enjoying a drink over the lunch hour.

Came to see Sir Horace Jones design. Definitely worth a look, go when it's quiet so you can look up freely. We were there on Friday afternoon and the bars were overflowing.

Beautiful Architecture. Lots of shopping. Good pubs and restaurants. And you can see the blue door that was the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron in the Harry Potter movies.

Leadenhall market is very cool, just a short walk from Liverpool Street and located near The Gherkin the deco of the shops makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. There is an alleyway that has books hanging off the ceilings which looks amazing. You have some nice restaurants, bars and chained food places in there too - plenty... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
