London is the United Kingdom’s magnificent capital city. One of the oldest capitals in the world, this fantastic City dates back over 2000 years, to the Roman Empire. Situated on the River Thames, the docks (now lined with glamourous apartments), were the key to the City’s prosperity at the height of the British Empire. Today, London serves as the business and cultural hub of the United Kingdon. Serving as the home to the Royal Family and some of the world's favourite celebs, London offers both glamour and culture. From the V&A and the Natural History Museum to shopping experiences Bond Street and Regent Street, this city has something for everyone. With all this considered, it is no wonder that this is the number 1 tourist destination in the UK, bringing in a staggering 30 million visitors each year.
This bustling City is made up of a collection of neighbourhoods, each of which offers its unique style and culture.
Commonly referred to as the “Square Mile” or “The City”, this area of Central London is home to some of the oldest and newest architecture in London.
