London is possibly one of the most famous cities in the world. Made up of a variety of boroughs all encompassing their own unique qualities, London is home to millions of people. The area consists of several thousand square kilometres and is therefore divided into regions and subregions. Getting around town has been made easy thanks to its excellent transport network including options like the tube, bus, cab and even ferry.
London truly caters for anyone from families to young professionals. No matter your priorities, there’s a borough with the perfect area for you. Whether you’re looking for a calmer neighbourhood with good schools for your young family or you’re looking for a vibrant, trendy district that’s well-connected to the City, London has it!
The city of London was founded by the Romans and in the third century, the Romans gave the area the name Londinium. Over the many centuries that passed, London had its fair share of historical moments including the establishment of Westminster Abbey in 1065, the Great Fire of London in 1666, the opening of the London Underground in 1863 and the Great Smog of 1952 to name a few. But the capital city has always continued to grow and prosper, especially following the 2012 Olympics which propelled London into the cultural and financial centre of Europe.
