The Guildhall
The City of London has been governed from this site for over 800 years. The present Guildhall was built in the early 1400s, and it is the headquarters of the Corporation of London, the governing authority for the City of London. The Great Hall is open to the public (10am to 5pm) and is the setting for magnificent state occasions, ceremonies, banquets, and important statements on the economy. In the West wing is the Guildhall Library, a fine resource for books (some very rare) on ancient London, and from where I am now sitting writing this piece.
