About London

Did you know: London is the second most popular tourist destination in the world? This regal and iconic city attracts more than 19 million visitors each year!

Founded by the Romans on the banks of the River Thames in 47 AD, London has always been known for its diversity, history and culture. Today London is Britain’s largest city, and is capital of both England and the United Kingdom.

London's location as a port city has long afforded its residents the luxuries of international trade and wealth. Like most large cities, the cost of living is expensive and affordable housing is in high demand. London is a lively city where world-class shopping and dining awaits around every corner. Some of the world's largest companies are headquartered here, and the job market is booming. But lest you think skyscrapers and taxi cabs are all this bustling city has to offer, London is also comprised of more than 40% public green space - no concrete jungle here! Spacious parks, stunning architecture and quaint neighborhoods make living in London a sight for sore eyes.

Some of its internationally renowned attractions include the London Eye Ferris Wheel, Big Ben, the Tower of London and Westminster Abbey. From the infamous "Changing of the Guard" ceremony at Buckingham Palace to the breathtaking city views at The Shard, London has something to offer for everyone. This cosmopolitan metropolis is also home to some of the world's best museums, theatres and art galleries.
