London is the capital city of the UK with a population of more than 8.5 million residents and the area of Greater London is comprised of 32 boroughs. The small central area, known as the City of London, is a hub of commerce where the stock exchange and major financial institutions are based. A thriving centre for art, culture, education, fashion, finance, music, politics and trade, London is a popular location for business travellers and holidaymakers. A luxury cottage is the perfect place to relax during your stay.
The centre of London is host to world-famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace; Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, the London Eye, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral and John Nash’s Marble Arch. When sightseeing in London, visitors will enjoy walking from Leicester Square to Trafalgar Square, where they can visit the National Gallery or the National Portrait Gallery. A journey down Piccadilly Circus to the Statue of Eros provides a photo opportunity.
Other important sites in London are the British Museum, the two Tate art galleries and outdoor parks and gardens; such as Bushy Park, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, Hampstead Heath, Holland Park, Regent’s Park and Richmond Park. Explore Bond Street, Chelsea’s King’s Road, Covent Garden, Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road for the latest in British fashion and interior design. The Charing Cross Road is a book and antique lover’s delight. After sightseeing, sit down at one of London’s many cafés or pubs before heading off to enjoy an evening of jazz, pop or classical music.
No longer just the once-walled ""Square Mile"" of London, the city is a giant metropolis offering exceptional culture, entertainment and history to visitors from around the globe. The surrounding ""home counties"", adjacent to the Greater London boroughs, extend the life of the capital city to its environs and suburbs.
