City of London ‘Did you know?’

  • In AD43 the Roman legions established a settlement on the current site of the City of London known as ‘Londinium’.
  • Despite its history, relatively few notable structures have survived in the City of London due to fire bombing and post WW2 redevelopment. Those that have include the Monument (to the Great Fire), Sir Christopher Wren’s St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Guildhall, the Royal Exchange, Dr. Johnson’s House and Mansion house, as well as many churches.
  • The death toll of the devastating Great Fire on 1666 that reduced large parts of the city to ruins was only six people, although many more died from indirect causes.

While the City has no sizeable park, it does have a network of gardens and small open spaces. These range from the formal, such as the one to be found in Finsbury Circus containing a bowling green and bandstand, to the informal churchyard areas, water features and artworks in courtyards and pedestrianised lanes within its boundaries.
