Since 1752, Lord Mayors of London have lived in Mansion House
Since 1752, Lord Mayors of London have lived in Mansion House opposite the Bank Of England.
As head of the City of London, the Lord Mayor presides over its governing bodies - the Court of Aldermen and the Court of Common Council.
He is Chief Magistrate of the City of London, Admiral of the Port of London, Chancellor of City University and President or Patron of many other civic and charitable organisations.
Each Lord Mayor serves for one year marked by the annual Lord Mayor’s show... Busy people then.
