New London Architecture

City of London

The City of London is the beating heart of a world city, and the centre of a dynamic network of commerce, trade and capital. It’s where businesses and people enjoy unparalleled accessibility to destinations near and far, high-speed digital connectivity, access to global markets and unrivalled cultural experiences – all within a compact, walkable area.

The City is changing, the workforce has become the youngest in the UK with 61% of all City workers aged 22–39 and over 40% now from overseas. SMEs make up 99% of the City’s businesses and micro businesses, with employees of less than 10, make up a staggering 83%. The City’s industries have expanded and diversified to include a large number of TMT businesses and with the new Culture Mile and One City initiatives the City of London is both celebrating and expanding its historic and contemporary cultural offer with over 20 cultural institutions, hundreds of bars, restaurants, shops and experiences unique to London’s historic centre.

The NLA City Programme connects professionals, politicians and the public with the City of London. A year-round programme of events including panel talks, walking tours, breakfast events, think tanks, networking and exhibitions that further debate around key themes across the City of London whilst providing valuable connections and opportunities for collaboration and consultation.
