Background and HistoryLondon Met can trace its routes back to 1848 with the formation of London Guildhall University, done at the behest of the Bishop of London to improve moral standards amongst young men in the city. London Met was formed in 2002 when London Guildhall merged with the University of North London.
Location and Accessibility
