Your new home is steeped in history. Known by the Romans as Londinium, the trading port and old City walls they built were resettled by Alfred the Great in 886 AD. Medieval times saw William the Conqueror grant London its charter and build The Tower of London, putting the blocks for the City we see today in place.
An established centre for commerce, the City was again transformed by the Industrial Revolution with Spitalfields becoming famous for its fruit and vegetable market and the ‘rag trade’ of textiles and clothing.
