Central London

Covering just 3km2 (1sq mile) north of the river, the City of London is the capital's legal and commercial hub. It still has many streets that follow medieval courses, and Roman gateways live on in street names such as Moorgate and Ludgate. The City skyline is graced by the dome of St Paul's Cathedral and dozens of distinctive churches, such as Fleet Street's St Bride's. During the 18th and 19th centuries, elegant residential areas such as Bloomsbury, Belgravia and Marylebone spread north and west of the City. The green expanses of Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and Regent's Park provide spacious playgrounds for Londoners; the more compact Primrose Hill has a fine view over the capital.
