Explore the Square Mile and beyond
From our hotel near St. Paul's Cathedral
Welcome to the City. Home to high-powered businesses, iconic cathedrals, and architectural marvels dating back to the Knights Templar, the City of London is more than the commercial heart of the UK: it's an often-overlooked destination worth exploring. From the area's Monday-to-Friday buttoned-up business atmosphere to the alluring peace and quiet of its weekend streets, the City's square-mile area offers one of Greater London's most fascinating blends of tourism, local flavour, and physical wonders.
In addition to the rich history of the City of London and the wide variety of sightseeing, dining, and shopping options in the Square Mile, the City has the benefit of being one of Greater London's most centrally located areas. The City is just across the Thames River from South Bank's museums, performing arts centers, and riverfront promenade, and just east of Covent Garden, which is home to dining, nightlife, and world-class theatres. The area is well-served by the London Underground, with stations like Blackfriars, Temple, Chancery Lane and St. Paul's providing access to many of London's best local areas from Apex Temple Court Hotel.
Business travel to the City of London is simple. Not only is the area home to the UK's most esteemed law firms, financial institutions, and corporations, it's easily accessible from London City Airport and regional rail hubs like City Thameslink, Tower Gateway, and Liverpool Street station.
