The City of London
It should be explained that the London known to the world is an area composed of the actual City of London and many other places which have been absorbed the over the centuries. Such as The City of Westminster, towns, like Camden and villages, for example, Highgate.
The actual City of London is one square mile in post codes EC2, EC3 and EC4. It is possibly still the Financial Capitol of the World.
The City Centre
Bank of England
The "Old Lady of Threadneedle Street" here is at the centre of the City in more ways than one. All three postal areas of the City converge on the road junction outside, EC2, 3 and 4 are represented. Give her a tickle to look around.

Stunning views across London and down onto the city can be obtained from this Building, if you, gentle visitor, care to click on it.
Tower Of London

This building has nestled at the side of the river for a few years now and is an icon of London. Strange indeed is the visitor to London who does not end up visiting here.
A building and small area next the river and to the west of the Tower of London, 'twill do for a start to touring some of the other buildings and views of the city
A recent building near Fenchurch Street station. It is built as an architect's idea as to how an american sky scraper should look. Quite impressive in a 'flashy' sort of way. But its location makes it difficult to get reasonable pictures of its outside. The lead in picture is from the Tower of London, the building being the one in the far distance. It has wonderful views down over the tower and part of the ancient walls of London running through the basement.

Towering above Fenchurch Street Station, as can be seen the block is just that, a block. But the views are quite good.
