Both Highfields District and Prettybone are located to the north of the River Olorun. The rest are located to the south. Each district has its own guard station, and it is how the [[Provost's Guard]] splits up its people in order to best protect the city. Unicorn, Upmarket, and a bit of Patten are the wealthier districts, same with Highfields and Prettybone.
   
It is not known whether the names or borders of these districts changed over the two hundred year gap between <i>[[Terrier]]</i> and <i>[[Song of the Lioness]]</i>.

The [[Temple District]], located south of the Common, does not require the Provost's Guard as it employs its own people.
