The Ceety o Lunnon (Inglis: City of London) is a sma aurie athin Greater Lunnon, Unitit Kinrick. It is the historic core o Lunnon aroond which the modren conurbation grew an haes held ceety status since time immemorial. The Ceety’s boondaries hae remained amaist unchynged since the Middle Ages, an it is nou anerlie a tiny pairt o the metropolis o Lunnon, though remains a notable pairt o Central Lunnon. It is aften referred tae as the Ceety (aften written on maps as "Ceety") or the Square Mile, as it is just ower ane square mile (1.12 sq mi/2.90 km2) [3] in aurie. These terms are an' a' aften uised as metonyms for the Unitit Kinrick's financial services industry, which haes historically been based here.

In the medieval period, the Ceety wis the full extent o Lunnon. The term Lunnon nou refers tae a muckle lairger conurbation roughly correspondin tae Greater Lunnon, a local government aurie which includes 32 Lunnon boroughs as well as the Ceety o Lunnon. The local authority for the Ceety, the City of London Corporation, is unique in the Unitit Kinrick, an haes some unuisual responsibilities for a local authority in Breetain, such as being the polis authority for the Ceety. It an aa haes responsibilities an awnerships ayont the Ceety's boondaries. The Corporation is heidit bi the Lord Mayor o the Ceety o Lunnon, an office separate frae (an muckle aulder than) the Mayor o Lunnon.
