Every so often when I see London on the news or in a movie, the street signs will say “City of Westminster”. And it always seems to be the very heart, the most important part of London, perhaps in the area they call “The City”.
What’s up with that? Is Westminster part of London, or is it an enclave, like Beverly Hills that is completely surrounded by Los Angeles? Or is Westminster just a district, and there are other “cities” around Greater London that actually do belong to it, the way that Chatsworth and Van Nuys belong to L.A>?
