But there are as sure as sunshine, more than a dozen reasons why people adore living in the great British capital. You may not be alone if you’ve at one time coveted moving to a rich and famous yet expensive city.

1. Impressive Economy

Matters Brexit aside, London is one of the most promising cities in the world when it comes to economies that sustain the population. Yes, the place may be a tad bit expensive to live in [1], but there are numerous job opportunities and the wages are higher than in most places on the globe. Regardless of your field of specialisation, securing good employment is way much easier than in most other places. Creative arts opportunities are numerous as well. Whether you’re into music, acting, photography, or writing, you can rest assured that your talent won’t go to waste when living in London.

2. Reliable… and I Mean Reliable Transportation

As soon as you get outside your residence, you can travel almost anywhere you want to be within the shortest time possible. Catching a train to Paris is as easy as snapping your fingers. The tube and the buses are also part of the reliable transportation hub that allows you to conveniently go around and about the city [2]. Airports are world-class and plenty, with affordable direct flights to almost any part of Europe and anywhere else in the world where it’s peaceful.

3. Rich History

Think about artifacts, structures, and collectibles that date back to as far as 43AD when London was founded. It’s awesome, right? London’s history is rich and quite interesting to study. If it’s your first time in an English city, you will surely marvel at the fine historic architectural pieces that are still standing after hundreds of years, probably thousands. London is occasionally also a host to some of the most important events with historical significance. The city is also home to a total of 4 UNESCO World Heritage sites, which include the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Tower of London, Maritime Greenwich, and the Palace/Abbey of Westminster [3].

4. Food Is Amazing In London

Everyone seems to know London for overcooked beef and crispy sandwiches. But the truth is, London has evolved quite well when it comes to the food scene. You have lots of incredible choices to pick from, considering the business atmosphere in the city has attracted plenty of new food joints, hotels, restaurants, and even pop-up cafes. Culinary arts have also become a deep-rooted trend in society. Oh; and there are lots of online food stores you can order your food from in case you get held up at home, by work, or business. It has become a place for the foodies, and for every new dish they try, they sure enjoy the food scene a lot.

5. Music and Entertainment

Living in London is fun, thanks to the many entertainment spots in the area, not forgetting plenty of joints you can find exciting things to do. Literally, every street has a bar, a club, or a live performance going down. I might have exaggerated a bit there but not so much! It’s no surprise why people of all ages enjoy London so much.

Solid education opportunities, great neighbourhoods, fashion, amazing shopping opportunities, nature parks, sports clubs, and stadiums where mammoths of crowds enjoy watching some of the most popular EPL soccer players get down to business [4]. It’s just almost impossible to get done. We can’t possibly exhaust all the reasons anyone would want to live in London but it sure as the rain is an awesome city to move to.
