A truly unique building and like no other in the square mile. If you are fortunate enough to go in you will see it's a real blend of old meets new. The old Lloyd's library is like stepping back in time, yet the trading floor...More
You must experience the outside of Lloyds, there is no other building on earth like it. Call it ugly, call it amazing, call it whatever you like in between, but it's a marvel of its own. Allegedly built "inside out", there are cranes, protruding pipes,...More
Lloyd’s Register’s London office is incredible place with stunning interior.
Open House festival giving free access to London’s best buildings and you also can visit Lloyd’s Register office for free. You must!
People come to the City of London in order to see 30 St Mary Axe (a.k.a the Gherkin), but it would be a real waste not to walk just few dozen steps to explore the home of Lloyds. It stands out - in a positive...More
Going into the LLoyds building is hard if at all possible. The architecture of building itself is somehow like the Centre Georg Pompidou, Paris. The shop next door sells some stuff that will help to explain the inside and what they do. More important however,...More
Spectacular, innovative, divisive and worth seeing up close. It looks like it's either unfinished or partially constructed inside out. I love being challenged by modern architecture - it's like modern sculpture on a grand scale - and this building has much to think about. I...More

Located in financial district of London and probably is sacred to every general Insurance practitioner to actually visit this place. I have got the 1st chance in 2006 and a few more revisits afterwards. One need to know the History of Llyods of London in...More
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's
glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
