It Came From Planet Gherkin


This is the Gherkin building in the City of London, overshadowing one of the many churches in the area.

For those not familiar with the ‘City’, it is a small area within London that encompasses the financial district.

    I’m English and live about 30 minutes from London. I never knew ‘City of London’ referred to just the financial bit!!!!

    You learn something new every day lol 🙂

      Yes, me too. I love learning new things. One thing about the City is that there’s a weird distinction in the spelling.

      There’s the ‘city of London’ (the whole of London) and the ‘City of London’ with a capital ‘C’ that’s just the square mile or so around the financial district.
