"I like it in the city when two worlds collide. You get the people and the government. Everybody taking different sides." So sang Adele in her hit song Hometown Glory. The superstar could well have been singing about Westminster, often considered the melting pot of central London where people of all colours, creeds and occupations head to on a daily basis.

Its location in central London - lodged between Bloomsbury and Marylebone - makes it ideal for those who prefer their conveniences … well, convenient. You can work, shop and eat within just a few streets of where you live. Perfect.

City of London: Cosmopolitan paradise

How to describe living in the City of London? Not the city as a whole - we're talking about the district here. To many, the very concept might seem alien.

After dark and at weekends, the Square Mile remains a hive of excitement and a hub of activity. Read on to discover whether this fantastic location will suit you.
