Attended a business conference here recently. The facilities were really good. Reassuring security checks on ensuring and good cloakroom facilities. Food was good but the clincher is the magnificent building itself and the history it holds.

We visited on the Open House weekend and were lucky to have someone explaining the heraldry, statues, etc to us. It has a long standing association with London and its Lord Mayor. A very interesting visit.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to
its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile
in the world, the financial district known simply as
“The City” is one of London's most historic and

Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually
every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
