Where do you start when trying to describe the English capital? It is the UK’s economic, political and cultural epicentre. From its palaces to its theatres, museums, art galleries and Royal Parks; Samuel Johnson had it right when he said: ‘When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.’ London as we know it was chosen as an ideal Roman settlement four years after troops invaded the south of England in 47 AD. It’s believed that the army built its original crossing close to Westminster. For 1,600 years, this was the only crossing for the Thames.

Londoners view their city as a collection of small and distinct villages, from the leafy green expanses of Hampstead Heath in the north, stretching out to the southern counties of Surrey, Sussex and Kent. Despite its ancient past, London is a true 21st century metropolis.

From the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace to Wembley Stadium and the Greenwich Meridian Line, London really is a place where time begins and ends. The home of Shakespeare and Dickens, approximately 1.5 billion people speak English around the world. It is the most common ‘official’ language across the globe, is viewed as the language of international business, and the most popular language on the internet.
