Example text

To the east of the City is the East End, which forms the eastern boundary of Inner London (Notting Hill and Earl’s Court roughly form the western boundary). Inner London is surrounded, like a donut, by the sprawling hinterland of Outer London. LONDON’S NEIGHBORHOODS IN BRIEF The City & Environs The City When Londoners speak of “the City” (EC2, EC3), they mean the original square mile that’s now the British version of Wall Street. The buildings of this district are known all over the world: the Bank of England, the London Stock Exchange, and famed insurance company Lloyd’s of London.

The East End is the home of the Cockney. To be a true Cockney, it’s said that you must be born within the sound of the Bow Bells of St. Mary-le-Bow church, an old church rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren in 1670. These days, many immigrants to London make their homes in the East End. London is pushing eastward, and the East End might even become fashionable, somewhat like the Lower East Side of New York. But that day isn’t quite here, and except for the Docklands area (see below), much of the East End doesn’t concern the average visitor.

W. Turner, Henry James, and Thomas Carlyle (whose former home can be visited). Mick Jagger and Margaret Thatcher (not together) have been more recent residents, and the late Princess Diana and her “Sloane Rangers” (a term used to describe posh women, derived from Chelsea’s Sloane Square) of the 1980s gave the area even more recognition. There are some swank hotels here and a scattering of modestly priced ones. The main drawback to Chelsea is inaccessibility. Except for Sloane Square, there’s a dearth of Tube stops, and unless you like to take a lot of buses or expensive taxis, you may find getting around a chore.
