Mansion House - side View

12 images from Bank – London

The Bank area in the City of London is  a major business and financial centre, ranking alongside New York City as the leading centre of global finance. The part of the city has always been a trading place and throughout the 19th century, the City served as the world’s primary business centre, and continues to be a major meeting point for businesses to this day.

This is quite a historic part of London with the Bank of England, the Stock Exchange , Mansion House and various old pubs and church all close by. The old city sites such as St Paul’s Cathedral  and the Tower of London are just a short walk away whilst the new London buildings such as the Gherkin and Tower 42 tower above it.

This is a tricky area to photograph due to the closeness of the buildings, the crowds and the lighting. The conditions never seem to align quite right, but I have found that the mornings during the weekends often prove most effective. The City of London is a great place to visit during the weekends as it is generally quite quiet.
