Everything happens big in London City. Save big on your next car hire purchase by using VroomVroomVroom.
London without doubt, is the largest town in Britain, the well known capital of England. It is made up of around 700 square miles. However, when it is refered to as the “City of London” this is talking about only the area that is occupied by the original old walled city that was built by the Romans. It was the very start of this ever growing metropolis that we witness today and that is simply referred to as London which over the years expanded ever outwards from that wall.
The old London City itself covered only an unbelievable area of roughly one square mile and was protected and surrounded by an eighteen foot high wall and a moat. The walls were sadly lost over time but this area, which has for many centuries been known as one of the major financial centres of the world, which is now full of international banks and businesses, is still well known as “The Square Mile” or "The City".

Public open spaces are a condition of all new builds within this Square Mile. The developers are required to provide one at their own expense, and the City agrees to maintain it thereafter. These are of course in addition to over 140 existing parks and open spaces in this wonderfully small area. All of these places are maintained to a very high standard by the City of London Corporation Open Spaces Department and are well known as “the green lungs of the City”.
