Why London?


London, founded by the Romans, has been a major settlement for two millennia and is England's capital city. With 300 languages spoken and over 8 million people, London is a leading financial centre, an entertainment hub and is the only city to have 4 universities ranking in the top 40 global league table. The most famous areas of London are packed with events, festivals and a constant buzz of activity; the city never stops and there are enough sites to see to keep you going for weeks!

Covent Garden

Start your journey in the heart of the West End and check out Covent Garden. Here you will find boutique shops, craft shops, street performers, opera singers and a world food market on Thursdays. The Royal Opera House is located in the middle of Covent Garden and only a short walk away you'll be in the middle of bustling Piccadilly Circus.

Mayfair

Head a little west and you'll reach the luxury area of Mayfair. This area is home to countless embassies, hedge funds, real estate businesses, and high end exclusive shops. This is London's largest concentration of luxury hotels and the area boasts rents among the highest in the world. The luxury of Mayfair makes it a particularly romantic area for anyone looking to celebrate their anniversary or Valentine's day in style.
