London is home to some of the most recognizable landmarks in the world including Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, and Buckingham Palace. From its red double decker busses to its red phone booths, to its iconic old-school taxis and “LOOK LEFT / LOOK RIGHT” street signs, London really is serving up all its endearing British charm on a silver platter.

It is traditional yet evolving, posh yet accessible. Visitors and expats from around the world are drawn to London’s attractive lifestyle, where there is always something going on. It’s a massive, global city, yet simultaneously feels very quaint and cozy. London is the city version of that neighbourhood pub where you always feel welcome (but also where you may have to push your way to the bar).

Whether you’re having a spot of tea or cheersing a pint of beer, the atmosphere is infectious and you will meets some jolly mates no matter where you go. Plus, everyone sounds polite with a British accent, so you’re bound to make friends.

Now it’s time to really get acquainted. Keep it on lock to this page as we share the best spots to eat, drink, explore, things to do, and Instagram inspiration.
