A mishmash of monarchical history, cultural diversity, and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it edginess, it is London’s blend of old and new that lends the city its unique charm. Despite its distinctive ‘London’ vibe, the city’s best asset is its flourishing smaller communities, each with its own quirks and charms. Where elegance and the finer things find their home in the West London suburbs of Covent Garden and Chelsea, fashion and creative urban scenes come alive in the East, in neighborhoods like Shoreditch. Foodies rejoice at the endless cuisines found in this multicultural metropolis, and café culture is alive and well throughout the city too.
The smallest city in the UK, London spans only 1.2 miles whereas Greater London covers 606 square miles. Over 300 languages are spoken in London with expats from various nationalities inhabiting the city. The legend has that London was built around 50 AD and its name was taken from the old Celtic word ‘Londinous’ meaning to be bold. London is also home to the world’s most billionaires leaving cities like New York and Paris behind.
