The City of London is an eclectic mix of the old and the new. Taverns, markets and side streets dating back centuries mingle seamlessly with new, ever larger, skyscrapers.

City’s Square Mile includes St Paul’s, Bank, Liverpool Street, Aldgate, Moorgate, Barbican and Blackfriars. The area is a thriving hub of financial services such as insurance, commodities trading and investment. Although the City has never before faced such an uncertain time, in light of the potential impact of Brexit it is likely that the City will retain its dominance as a leading financial services centre.

Beyond the area’s prominent business interests, there are plenty of points of cultural interests to discover too. If you fancy a food market on your lunchtime there are plenty to choose from such as Leadenhall Market, Smithfield Market or you can visit Broadgate Circle.

Although the City is a great place to work, sometimes the urban surroundings leave you longing for a little bit of greenery. Finsbury Circus Garden is the ideal place to relax or have lunch on a sunny day. During summer, you can take time away from your desk on a deckchair at Finsbury Square. If you are based in St. Paul’s, you can relax at Paternoster Square.

All the above makes the City an extremely attractive location and so commands a premium price. Therefore, it may seem impossible to secure affordable office space in the Square Mile, especially in some of the best-known high rises of the City. However, the solution may be simpler than you'd think: flexible office space could help you obtain an exclusive address at a comparatively low cost. Through LEO, you could be working from a prestigious location like 1 Cornhill, one of the oldest and most famous buildings in the City without committing to a pricey or lengthy lease.
