He has just crossed the border between London and the City of London

See that Dragon behind him? It marks that border.

And here is a nice and short video which explains the London vs City of London thing in under five minutes:

During our stay in Moldova whenever I referred to the City as "the City" or "the City of London", the locals often asked me "Why are you adding "city"? We know that London is a city not a village".

I started reading up on history of London (and the City) towards the end of my first year there (a long time ago) and found it absolutely fascinating.
