If you like to stop by after work and have a drink, this is a good place. If you would like to take pictures, you can find nice angles to take photos of this place.

An unexpectedly large warren of historical building and old market. We were there on a Saturday night (crazy busy hot spots) so went back Sunday--just to appreciate the history and architecture. Interesting to walk through--very much looking forward to a guided tour. I think the bars/pubs/restaurants are an ancillary reason to go--the history and architecture is magnificent. This is much...

Worth visiting if in the area, but not worth a special trip. Mixture of smal shops, eateries and pubs but almost all closed at the weekends. Regularly used for filming

Wow what a place. Saw this on a bicycle tour with Breakaway Tours, the secret tour. This was used for the Harry Potter films. Go late in the afternoon when the lights are on, what atmosphere. Not on your regular sights to see but it is a must see place!!!

I'm lucky enough to work near. We frequently go out for beers in the afternoon or for lunch in the market. It offers a picturesque escape from the normal concrete and glass of the city. I'm told the market starred on one of the Harry Potter films. It might explain at least some of the photographs found at any time... More

Come here for the architecture of this building built in the 15th century . It's also really nice because it's covered from the rain. Nice range of shops and restaurants to chose from.

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.
