The heart of London is the City. It is only one square mile but it is the oldest and the most important part of the capital. You can find the famous historic landmarks such as the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and St. Paul’s Cathedral in this part of the capital.

The City is the financial and commercial centre of the country. There you can find the biggest and the most famous and important offices, firms and banks of the United Kingdom.

The East End lies to the east of the City. Today the East End is an area with numerous small offices, factories and workshops that are mixed up with the houses. The famous Docks of London are also situated here. The East End is often called “the hands of London”.

The West End which lies to the west of the City is the richest part of the capital. The most famous London’s museums, parks, galleries, restaurants, theatres, cinemas and shops can be found here.
