London: It Should Be On Your Bucket List

Source: Wikipedia Communs
London is a world-famous city. But even though it attracts millions of visitors every year, there are still many more people out there who haven’t visited the place. If that’s you, then you’re missing out. London is probably the most magnificent city in the world to travel to. 

Check out the following reasons why London should be on your bucket list. 

The Rich And Famous Call It Home

Where does the highest concentration of super wealthy people call home? Beverly Hills? Hollywood? New York? Hong Kong? Nope. The vast majority of the world's wealthiest people live in London. They can’t get enough of all the benefits that the capital brings, including the festivals, restaurants and nightlife.

The Rich History

London is a city with an extraordinarily long and winding history. The first settlement on the site wasn’t even British - or not as the Brits would understand it. Before the Romans arrived, the local indigenous population had built a few mud huts along the Thames, presumably so that they could more easily gather fish. When the Romans arrived, they introduced more advanced technology and part of the modern road layout. Over time, the city layered new on top of old, making it into the eclectic place you see today. 

London is home to dozens of fascinating museums and historical attractions, including the London Dungeons, the National History Museum and former residence of Henry VIII, Hampton Court Palace. 

The Incredible Places To Eat

London is one of the best places in the world to eat, not just because of the quality of the food, but also the location of restaurants. The canteen at the top of 30 St Mary’s Axe provides stunning views over the city. 

It’s also an excellent place to grab a meal made with local seasonal produce. A Canary Wharf restaurant for instance, takes inspiration from seasonal foods in their meals. 

The Peaceful Green Spaces

London is a city that can surprise you. One moment, you can be surrounded by people marching to work in the City, the next in a small green space nobody seems to know about. Because of the way that London has grown up, it’s peppered with little gems like this. London retains much of its old street structure, meaning that there are small alleys and parks all over the place that only those willing to explore will find. 

The Brits Themselves

London isn’t the friendliest of cities. But it does contain some of the most exciting people in the world if you can look past the prickly exterior of the place. Everyone in the city wants to get ahead and make their mark. It’s the type of place where you can bump into all kinds of famous people and business leaders.

The Excellent Shopping

If you love shopping, you’ll love London. The best place to go is Oxford Street, but you can also find boutique shopping around Covent Garden. Don’t forget to pay a visit to Fortnum and Mason near Piccadilly Circus and make sure that you take a wad of cash with you.
