The City

Highly recommended
The City of London is situated on the north side of the River Thames, and lies within the old London Wall (vestiges remain) which delineated the Roman and medieval settlement. One of the world's leading financial districts, the area is home to stunning feats of modern architecture as well as historic buildings, and a good selection of bars, restaurants and trendy shops. There are fine views of the City from the top of the dome of St Paul's Cathedral.

The English pub: two thousand years of history

Referred to as tabernae under the Roman Empire, then as ale house in the Middle Ages, the pub is an integral part of English history. To get a feel for this British institution, head to London and these three typical places: The Cat and Mutton, The Morgan Arms and The Drapers Arms.
