The City of London has been a centre of power and financial significance since the Romans first built a settlement here (in places, you can still see sections of the wall that protected it). Also known as the Square Mile, the City remains the base for a litany of global company headquarters. Archaic guilds and churches (used and disused) are dotted around liberally, the most famous being St Paul's Cathedral. Also of interest are the numerous small public gardens; Postman's Park and the garden inside the shell of another Christopher Wren church, St Dunstan-in-the-East (destroyed by bombing during World War II) are worth visiting.
