The Diversity Of London Locations

When it comes to the United Kingdom, London acts as the hub of so much and the varied mix of locations it offers makes it an everlasting attraction.

The English capital is a vibrant and varied city with each London location offering something unique.  The diversity between boroughs such as Chiswick and Hackney is so immense that you could be forgiven for thinking that you were in different cities.

Surroundings to behold
Contrasting London skylines include the South Bank which boasts views of the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye set against some not so attractive views of high rise council accommodation in neighbouring boroughs. Many West London locations are affluent with properties often commanding seven figure prices and areas including Chiswick, Kew and Richmond are testament to this with many celebrities seen in the numerous upmarket restaurants and wine bars. London is also surprisingly green and the three aforementioned locations boast large commons, amateur sporting grounds and in the case of Kew, spectacular gardens.

Cultural heritage
It is said that London city itself is contained in one square mile although the metropolis has spread vastly beyond this virtual boundary. With 32 different boroughs, Greater London is a multicultural mix of ethnicity, class and educational backgrounds. The heritage and history that London has to offer means that it attracts sightseers from all over the world. From Buckingham Palace, to the Tower of London with its bloody past and beyond, London is unique amongst its peers.

Prestigious buildings
Many of the buildings are historical monuments in their own right whilst providing homes, offices or places of worship. The names are seemingly endless including 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and St Paul’s Cathedral – all household names at home and abroad. Mixing this with the modern architecture of the Shard, the affectionately named Gherkin and the shiny financial offices of Canary Wharf, London is a standout amongst capital cities.

Sport
In addition to the above attractions, London is home to some of the biggest and best sporting arenas in the world. Alongside the Olympic Stadium there is Wembley (home to the national football team) and Twickenham (rugby’s equivalent). Top flight football teams including Arsenal (Emirates Stadium), Tottenham Hotspur (White Hart Lane), Chelsea (Stamford Bridge) and Fulham (Craven Cottage) are based in London which demonstrates the size of the city.

The parks were cited in the upmarket areas but Central London has the Thames running through the heart of it with Hyde Park, Regent Park and Green Park amongst the larger of a number of green areas in the city.
