Lloyd's of London


Practical Information

This ultra-modern edifice stands out among other city structures in London's financial district or Square Mile, as it is also known. It was constructed to take the place of two previous Lloyd's establishments, one from 1928 on the same site and the other from 1958 located at 51 Lime Street. Alas, there is no public access, but the exterior of the building, which is designed by Richard Rogers, gives a glimpse of modern London. At night, when the City is deserted, the famous insurance headquarters is illuminated in blue. A Corney & Barrow wine bar below the building, with access from outside, retains a good number of Lloyd's employees after 5p.

Location:  1 Lime Street
