London named best city in the world 2023

28 February 2023 / Corporate News

As the UK and London Estate Agent of the year, we agree with the New York Times, that London really is the best city in the world and most definitely number one of its ’52 Places to Go in 2023’. London has been known for centuries for its rich history, vibrant culture, and world-class amenities.

In 2022, London saw the significant addition to London’s train network, the Elizabeth line, linking an international airport to the heart of the city and dramatically improving transport from London and the South East; as well as the recently renovated Battersea Power Station, with plenty of options for dining, drinking, shopping, and entertainment.

Home to 11 million people, the capital was recognised for its restaurant scene, culture, architecture, and its luxurious properties, some of which we have the pleasure of selling and renting.

London has some of the most luxurious and prestigious properties in the world, attracting wealthy buyers and tenants from around the globe. From elegant townhouses to stunning penthouses, its property market is one of the most sought after in the world with 61 luxury London properties sold in the first six months of 2022, the highest number in a decade. 

London is a city immersed in history and is home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks, such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and the Houses of Parliament. The British Museum houses one of the world’s most extensive collections of artifacts, and the museums and historical sites attract tourists from all over the world.

As one of the most multicultural cities in the world, London, with its diverse population brings with it a wealth of culture and cuisine. The city is also home to some of the world’s best theatres, hosts some of the world’s best shopping, with famous department stores like Harrods and Selfridges, as well as trendy boutiques and markets like Camden Market and Covent Garden. The city also has a vibrant nightlife scene, with world-class restaurants, bars, and clubs. London’s transportation system is also second to none, with the London Underground providing easy access to all parts of the city.

London is a global hub for business, with many international companies headquartered in the city including Meta, who is building its largest base in Kings Cross, and Tik Tok who have recently moved into an office in Farringdon.

Hyde Park

It is a city that also boasts some of the world’s most beautiful parks and views. Hyde Park, Greenwich Park, and Regents Park are just a few of the city’s green spaces that offer a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. London’s famous skyline, with its iconic buildings such as the Shard and the Gherkin, provides a stunning backdrop to the city. With all this being said, we can see why there is a high demand for property in London and our award winning and experienced staff are here to help you with any of your selling and letting needs.
