I must confess from the outset that I have always loved London. Having grown up in ‘the gritty North’, the bright lights of London have always looked incredibly attractive. Nowadays, I regularly visit, and I still love it just as much! For me, London has everything going for it. It really does show the very best of British!
Nobody can doubt London’s credentials as the UK’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan city.
With over 8 million inhabitants, it has an incredible energy that lasts 24 hours a day, every single day of the year. Even better still, each borough of London has a unique vibe which means you can find the ideal area for you. Whether you love a night on the tiles, or just a quiet night sat in the park, London has a place where you will feel right at home.

There are a number of reasons to visit London, and it doesn't necessarily have to be for sheer pleasure. London's bright and bustling business district is a wonder to behold in full flow. If you ever get the chance to visit with work then grasp it with both hands! The energy really is something to behold. As well as this, London also contains a number of museums and galleries where you can see many of the world’s greatest artists and sculptors.

In tandem with this, London’s tube and overground transport systems make the city extremely accessible. Due to this, you can see almost all areas of the city in a single day. However, to fully enjoy all the wonders that London has to offer, it is best to stay over for at least a couple of nights. In doing this, you can also take in a show and see both sides of this extraordinary city. London definitely changes when the sun goes down- don’t miss out!
For me, London is all about fashion and style. Due to this, the only way to stay is in a chic boutique apartment such as the ones offered by One Mayfair Apartments. Situated in the heart of London, they remain surprisingly peaceful and calm despite being only a few minutes from Oxford Street. Here, luxury meets simplicity and affordability, meaning that you can enjoy London while relaxing in style.
