The (secret) City of London is NOT part of the UK | England

The City of London is NOT London! Looks like a play on words but it's not. They are completely different cities.

I have been may times in London and there is so many things to do in the City of London, but this time I thought about talking a bit about the secret City of London.

The City of London is also knows as The City and The Square Mile because it only has about 1.12 square miles.
I talk on the video about the City of London about some secrets and facts about it but there is one in particular that most of the people don't know, and that is the London Bridge and the London Tower are not owner by London's government but they are owned by The City of London Corporation.

Some say that the City of London is not part of the UK, I don't know about that but the facts that I say on the video about the city of London I know they are true.

The city of London has a different mayor and he is usually called The Right Honourable Lord Mayor of London, The Lord Mayor of London has full authority over The City of London, The Square Mile.

There are many conspiracies about banking and finance in The City but for sure The City owns a lot of buildings and places outside of the perimeter of The City.

SUMMARY:
- Big Ben isn't the name of the clock or the tower it’s on – it’s the bell inside!
- At an astounding 443 feet (135 m) in height, the London Eye is the 4th tallest Ferris wheel in the world. A single rotation on this bad boy takes roughly 30 minutes to complete.
- The towering British Library in King’s Cross, London has lots and lots of books for you to enjoy. It’s got over 170 million items in its catalog!
- London has THE oldest and one of the largest underground transport systems on our planet. The London “tube” includes 270 fully functioning stations and at least 40 more that aren’t even in use.
- In Scotland, you can take the world’s shortest flight between Westray and the Papa Westray Islands. Get ready because this flight will take…just 2 minutes!
- Make sure you don’t stick a stamp with the Queen upside down on an envelope in the UK. Otherwise, it’s considered an act of treason!
- It’s illegal to wear an armor suit into the House of Parliament. I know, I know, it’s always been on your bucket list, but you’ll just have to forget about it and wear your armor somewhere else!
- The British drink it more than any other nation in the world. For instance, they drink 20 times more tea than Americans do!
- If you make it to 100 years old in the UK, The Queen will send you a telegram and wish you a happy birthday. You can get another one if you celebrate your 105th birthday, and still more each year after that! How thoughtful!
- You won’t find any US eggs in the UK. They’re illegal since they get washed.
- Speaking of strange laws, it’s actually illegal to go to the cinema on a Sunday in Northern Ireland. You can even be fined up to £50, or roughly $65, for breaking this law!
- In the early 1800s, just about a quarter of all women in Britain were named Mary. Sophia has held onto the #1 spot for 9 years in a row, and Mary didn’t even make it to the top 25 in 2018!
