The capital city of England, London is the largest city in the UK and the EU. Situated on the River Thames, London has been a settlement for over two thousand years and is a leading centre for finance, commerce and the arts. London has a very diverse population with a range of cultures and over 300 languages in use. It is the home of a significant number of important cultural institutions, universities and centres of excellence.
Because of the extensive underground train network andan unrivalled bus service, Londoners are connected to the whole of Greater London as well as to the rest of the UK and beyond. They also benefit from a huge selection of housing, education, leisure and shopping facilities.
As one of the most desirable cities in the world to live and work, property in London reflects all tastes and most budgets; however, accommodation is extremely expensive. Studio flats sell and rent what you might expect to pay for terraced and semi accommodation in other areas of the UK and yet are snapped up once advertised. Opportunities for wise investment abound but should be tempered by caution and good research.
