Sometimes referred to as London City Centre, it is the innermost part of London and the core of Inner London. The Central London sub-region spans the boroughs of Camden, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Southwark, Westminster and the City of London.

It has been variously described as an exceptional collection of vitally essential undertakings including government offices, corporate headquarters offices and embassies, the most significant concentration of London’s financial and business services sector and the offices of professional bodies, trade, associations, institutions, communications, publishing, advertising and the media.

It is the area that landmarks of London are associated with such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, The London Eye, Palace of Westminster, and St Pauls Cathedral, to name just a few.
