City of London and City fringes
The City of London is not only the historic heart of the Capital, being the original site of Roman settlers, but it is now the financial hub of the metropolis.
The number of people living within the City of London is actually relatively small (approx 8,000), compared to those commuting and working in the City on a daily basis (approx 320,000).
However, the range of facilities such as shopping, gyms and places of leisure, is ever expanding and several major retail schemes are well advanced which will make shopping in the City a seven day event.
