During London's 2,000 years of recorded history, it has experienced plague, the Great Fire of London, Civil War and two World wars, and yet it has grown to become one of the most important business, financial, and cultural capitals in the world.
Historic London was established as a civilian town by the Romans but seven years after the invasion of AD43, there is evidence of prehistoric settlement in London dating from at least a thousand years before that.
London is a major tourist destination, offering numerous iconic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, The Tower of London, Westminster Abbey and the London Eye; furthermore the famous institutions such as The British Museum and The National Gallery are all within the city for the benefit of residents and tourists alike.
London is a major international transport hub, and tourists find it easy to travel around London on the London Underground known as ‘The Tube', this network serves 275 stations, with five main train stations, Waterloo, Victoria, St. Pancras, Paddington and Euston. Tourists can step on a train that will take them to Britain's major cities, furthermore St. Pancras is the terminus for the Eurostar train to Paris, also with five international airports, the main being Heathrow, which carries more international passengers than any other airport in the World.
In terms of accommodation in the City of London, just what has London to offer the tourist or business person that has traveled many miles to work rest and play in this most famous city? Of course there are plenty of hotels, ranging from 3 through to 5 stars, but a hotel room can be restrictive and very expensive.
Corporate personnel and tourists are not only looking for value for money but are also looking for something different that offers the home away from home feel and is totally self contained and self catering, thus more and more people are learning about luxury serviced apartments London.
