About the area
The City of London also known as the square mile is approximately what was the old medieval walled city of London. This area is now the financial centre of London. Famously there are more CCTV cameras per square mile in the city of London than anywhere else in the world. As a result this is statistically the safest area in London.
The city of London is nestled between the buzz and excitement of the westend and the new trendy cutting edge east end. The area itself has a large number of shops and great supermarkets. You will also be utterly spoiled for choice with restaurants from the humble curry houses of brick lane to the incredible array of restaurants throughout the city.
The Barbican Estate was built in the middle of last century on a WW2 bomb site. It has been considered a highly successful example of modern architecture in the Brutalist style and has now attained special listed status.
The Barbican is also an arts centre with restaurants and cinemas on site. It is well worth checking out what is on at the Barbican theater or gallery.
**PLEASE NOTE - as with many areas in central London there is building work going on in the area. Building hours are restricted to weekdays and Saturday mornings. At night this is an exceptionally quiet location for central London. **

The Barbican is a UNIQUE residential development in the heart of the financial district of London. There are just over 1000 dwellings on this estate. The square mile of the City of London is neatly wedged between the buzzing westend of London and the vibrant and edgy Eastend. There are remnants of the old Roman wall that enclosed the medieval London just 1 min walk from the flat. It is also statistically the safest part of London.
