You can see the superb monuments and the fascinating Victorian architecture everywhere, as well as the great churches, all of which heritage from the glorious British Empire. Stroll around the quiet Georgian squares, the walks along the river or the narrow historic streets. On the other hand, believe us when we say that London is unexpectedly green: stunning parks, such as St. James’s, Hyde Park and Green Parkare located in the heart of the city, and we are not talking about small blocks of trees and flowers… no, those are huge parks, beautifully taken care of, full of lakes, different types of flora and fauna. A little bit away from the city centre there are also immense parks, if you prefer less populated neighbouring, such as Richmond Park, Greenwich Park and Hampstead Heath.

You could also spend some time shopping around in department stores such as Harrods or Selfridges or in the out of the ordinary markets from Portobello Road, Old Spitalfields and Camden in the weekend. Nightlife is vibrant… London never sleeps… with lots of clubs, particularly in the Soho area, with not few opportunities also to catch a first rate West end theatre performance or an opera concert. Pubs are all around giving an exciting atmosphere to the city, but food is a major attraction too, with an extensive range of Michelin-starred and many high-rated restaurants bringing excellence to the widest choice of cuisines on the planet – Chinese, British, Italian, Spanish, Thai cuisines, you name it…
