London is one of the major financial centers in the world and in recent years has competed with New York in the United States as the most important place in international finance. Central London hosts the headquarters of more than half of the top 100 companies in the UK and more than 100 of the top 500 companies in Europe. Its five major business areas: City, Westminster, Canary Wharf, Camden & Islington and Lambeth & Southwark are also tourist references to the English capital … If you have meetings in one of these locations be sure to visit the surrounding area as it will be worth it! There’s always time for everything! Work hard, play hard!

The city currently has over 8 million people but is predicted to grow to 9 million by 2021 and almost 10 million by 2031. This growing population is characterized by being younger than the rest of the UK with almost 66% of Londoners under the age of 44. Although London is primarily known as a financial center, it has a flourishing technological scene set in Silicon Roundabout. According to 2016 data, Greater London employed more than 5 million people and, according to the most recent data from the Register of Business and Employment (2017), 483,000 people are employed in the city of London. This represents 9% of employment in Greater London and 1.6% of Britain’s total employment, which means that more than 1 in 63 Britain’s workers work in the city. These are just a few of the aspects that make London one of the world’s premier business centers!

Richly served in terms of transport are the airports (Gatwick, Stansted and Luton) with more than 120 million passengers per year on more than 700,000 flights. The famous Tube guarantees quick connection between various points of the city, as well as the bus service. Taxi, Uber and even rickshaws …the only thing difficult in central London to do is just to ride in own car!
