The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

There in my time of need
Sep 2021
I visited the City Information Centre whilst visiting London. I was having struggles due to my health difficulties. The three ladies who formed the staff were very helpful and I would just like send my thanks to them, for being there in my time of need.

They supported me to print off my ticket for the Big Bus tour that I was struggling. The lady I believe was the manager even offered to phone up the Big Bus tour office but she did there would probably be nobody there. It was very kind of her to offer to do this.

Thank you so much ladies for making trip to London more enjoyable.

Great help for Theater Schedule and Travel Info
Jan 2020
This is the only place in London I could find the theater schedule and map leaflet.
The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to provide me with all the information I needed to plan my theater visits. This is a must stop for current tourist information.

Great maps & good prices at the currency exchange (when I went)
Aug 2019
Really close to St Paul's - pick up maps and tourist tips for trips in and outside of London. Also, the currency exchange rate was excellent when I was buying dollars.

Highly Recommended !

We do feel privileged after enjoying a fantastic morning with Neil Sinclair on the Roman London Tour. He was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide taking us around Roman sites both outdoors and at the Mithraeum and Guild Hall Amphitheatre. Always interesting, we really appreciated the clarity of his explanations and the extra details he supplied. He took time and trouble to make sure all of our interests and needs were met and he was good company. We are looking forward to arranging further tours with him.
