The City of London - or the Square Mile as it's sometimes called, is a relatively small area found in central London. It's where the first Roman settlers set up camp and it now acts as the beating heart of London - and the UK as a whole. The City of London is a hub for business and financial services - over 300,000 people commute to and work in the City of London each day. Despite so many people working in the Square Mile, however, only around 7,000 people live there.
You'd be forgiven for being a little lost in the City of London - not because it's particularly expansive or confusing to navigate, just because you don't know where to look next. On every corner, there's a landmark that has been in one movie or another. There's St Pauls Cathedral, Mansion House (the official residence of the Mayor of London), as well as lots of skyscrapers - and even the Museum of London.
As you'd expect, the City of London is extremely well catered for in terms of public transport - there are various tube stations dotted in and around the Square Mile. Various buses operate an array of routes through the City, and there's also an abundance of the traditional black cabs that whizz their way around London.
Finding lettings in the City of London isn't difficult - there's a great deal of choice out there. So what are you waiting for? Living in the City of London is a whole new experience.
