Since its creation at the 1950 General Election, the constituency has always elected the candidate nominated by the Conservative Party. It has been represented since 2001 by Mark Field.
The constituency covers much of the commercial, historical and touristic heart of London, including the Square Mile, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park.
Mayfair, Belgravia and Knightsbridge rank among Europe’s wealthiest residential districts but around half the electorate are in the more socially mixed areas of Bayswater and Pimlico, or the former council estates of Westminster.
