Situated in Mansion House Street, Mansion House is the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London. Eighteenth century architect, George Dance, designed it in the so-called Palladian style, recognisable for its facsimile Greek pillars and architrave. The grand building hosts the big ceremonies and functions of the City of London’s year. Talk to us if you’ve been hurt due to a lack of safety at work in Mansion House.
The post is elective, and runs for four years, the incumbent (2014) is Boris Johnson. The mayor carries responsibility, with the relevant authorities, for the functioning of the city through transport and essential services, and also for planning and development decisions.
The streets were paved with gold
The first mayor of London was medieval merchant, Richard Whittington (1354 – 1423). He was four times mayor and the real-life inspiration behind the folk-tale of Dick Whittington and his black cat. The tale recounts how the pauper Dick trudged to London, where the streets were paved with gold. His intention was to make his fortune from the ratting abilities of his cat. It sounds like an early principle of free enterprise, although there is no evidence the real Whittington had a cat.
