London Real Estate

Located on the Thames River, in the southeast of Great Britain, with a population of around 8.7 million (mid-2015), London is the most densely inhabited city in England and the UK. It is not only the capital of England, but also the cultural, political, and economic capital of Great Britain.

Unofficial Capital of The World?

London has been a major settlement for more than two thousand years. Nowadays, it is a preeminent metropolis in virtually every field from finance, commerce, and professional services to education, entertainment, fashion, and arts. It is also one of the globe’s most important financial centers and its metropolitan area ranks it as the 5th or 6th most populated city worldwide. On the other hand, London has an incredible multicultural diversity. One out of every three London citizens were born in a foreign country, representing 300 languages and nearly the same number of nationalities. It is with good reason that London is considered as the unofficial capital of the world.

Unique and Distinct Landmarks

London’s first-class tourist attractions are famous around the world. There is, for instance, the Houses of Parliament (also known as the Palace of Westminster), the most famous feature of which is Elizabeth Tower. The very renown Elizabeth Tower … It doesn’t ring a bell? Well, that is probably because it is most commonly known as the Big Ben – one of the top London landmarks.

The deep and rich history the city is immersed in blends with innovation and modernity. Yet modern buildings and attractions like the Shard (the tallest building in the UK, with 95 floors), the Gherkin (formally known as 30 St. Marie Axe – a commercial skyscraper), and the London Eye (a colossal Ferris wheel that stands 135 meters (443 feet) high) never drown out the architectural grandeur of such distinct landmarks as the Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Buckingham Palace, and Trafalgar Square – all unmissable to anyone visiting London. On top of that, few cities can boast four World Heritage Sites. London has the Kew Gardens (also known as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Maritime Greenwich, the Tower of London (which is actually a castle of 22 towers), and the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey.

The British Museum, Picadilly Circus, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, the Monument, the Museum of London (one of the best museums in the city), and the Covent Garden Piazza are a few other popular attractions in London.

Open Spaces / River Thames

There are lots of spaces to relax in London on a good-weather day. The city has devoted about a third of its area to parks and open spaces. The Royal Parks and Hampstead Heath offer great views over the city. River tours across the River Thames offer an alternative to see the city from a different angle. Options include themed cruises, narrated sightseeing trips, and dining experiences.
