The City of London is the business district right at the centre of London. It’s often referred to as the Square Mile.
The City of London Corporation provides local authority services for the area. It also supports and promotes London as the world’s leading international financial and business centre.
The City works in partnership with local communities to increase skills, employment and opportunities, enhancing the city’s culture, history and green spaces for all Londoners.
It is headed by the Lord Mayor, an international ambassador for the City and UK financial and business services, a role separate from (and much older than) the Mayor of London.
