How does the City of London differ from London city?

The City of London is a city and county within London city (London the city is with a small 'c' in city, City of London has a Capital), and is often referred to as 'The Square Mile'. It is one of the 33 local authority districts although is not actually a London Borough.

The City of London has added responsibilities over other Local Authorities including being the police authority (City Police) and ownership beyond its boundaries. The Corporation is headed by the Lord Mayor of the City of London which is different to the Mayor of London.
