The Square Mile, aka the City of London, is the heart of trade and business in Europe. The area abounds with bars and restaurants designed to impress for the business people who like to let their hair down after work. However there is also plenty to do for visitors to London.
Located on London Wall in the City, the Museum of London documents the history of London from prehistoric times to the present day and tells the story of the City and its people. A series of exhibitions give visitors a taste of the real London.
The Monument to the Great Fire of London, or simply The Monument as it is more commonly known, was built to commemorate the Great Fire of London and to celebrate the rebuilding of the City. The Monument provides visitors with an opportunity to look across London in all directions from a height of about 160 feet, being the level of the public gallery.
The Square Mile is easily reached by public transport from any of our London vacation rentals.
