City Of London
The CITY OF LONDON is a city and county that contains the historic centre and the primary central business district (CBD) of London . It constituted most of London from its settlement by the Romans in the 1st century AD to the Middle Ages , but the agglomeration has since grown far beyond the City's borders. The City is now only a tiny part of the metropolis of London , though it remains a notable part of central London . Administratively, it forms one of the 33 local authority districts of Greater London ; however, the City of London is not a London borough , a status reserved for the other 32 districts (including London's only other city, the City of Westminster ). It is also a separate county of England, being an enclave surrounded by Greater London
