What's it like to live in London?
Check out our region guide

Greater London comprises 32 boroughs, stretching from the City of London – the business centre, where the Gherkin and Walkie Talkie buildings stand – to the surrounding areas of Croydon, Enfield, Hillingdon, and Havering.

It’s big, but it’s easy to jump on a train, tube, bus, or even tram, to experience everything on offer: from food pop-ups in Hackney and Shoreditch, and world famous music acts at the O2, to free museums and West End shows in the middle.

Fabulously diverse and historical, with many industries and businesses based here to kickstart your career, London is one of the most desirable – if pricey – cities in the world.
