City of LondonThe Square Mile was once the old city contained within the medieval walls, a history remembered each November in the pomp of the Lord Mayor's Show. Now it is the nation's financial centre and embodies the capital's mix of tradition and change. A place of mighty skyscrapers, this tiny area, only twenty minutes walk from one side to the other, generates 3 per cent of the UK's income. The City by night has some of the most stunning sights in London, a ghost town of towering skyscrapers and stunning churches, including St Paul's Cathedral, the spiritual heart of Great Britain. Around the edges of the City are some of the best arts and entertainment venues in London, including the Museum of London, Fabric nightclub, Smithfield Market, and the wonderful Barbican Centre, where much of the capital's best classical and contemporary music, theatre and art can be found.
