London social life and experience

London Street

London is a huge and diverse city and it is divided into 5 main areas - North, East, Central, South East, and South West. People usually choose the area to live according to their preferences however; in the city of London choosing the right place to live may be a difficult choice. It is really difficult to name one particular area, as each area represents its own characteristics.

On this page we have tried to gather useful information about most popular and interesting places in each area. It’s not surprising that we would like to start with our area as we are based in North London.

North London is an area full of gorgeous parks, cosy old pubs and fabulous local shops. Very often visitors pay less attention to great attractions in this area and focus only on Central part  of London with its traditional attractions known all over the world.

However, it would be definitely a great experience to visit Highgate cemetery, an old gothic graveyard surrounded by stunning houses, and also to visit an old style traditional pubs like The Flask or The Bull and Bush with the unique spirit of old Britain, meet lovely locals ready to chat and share a pint of finest ales produced for 100 years by family-run breweries. You can also witness the most mesmerizing views of the city and the sunset from Muswell Hill, Primrose Hill or Hampstead Heath and last but not least is Camden Market which has almost five million visitors every week.

East London is used to be a working class area of London for many years. People with no aristocratic connections used to live there and spend most of their days working in big factories or the docks. Nowadays East London has left its history and become a centre of art and creativity. Fashionable, trendy people are choosing to live there. Visitors in this area can find Spitafield street market with its unique hand-made stuff, Brick lane full of small fashion shops ran by young artists, underground clubs with best electronic DJs, the famous ambiguous street artist Banksy and many other interesting places.

Central London does not need a long and detailed description. Most of the unique London’s attractions are located in central London. Fabulous parks, gorgeous architecture, the greatest museums and galleries and shopping centres are all inimitable representatives of Central London.

South East London comprises the amazing cathedrals like St. Paul’s and riverside walks. Canary Wharf is a major business district and is one of London’s two main financial centres and contains many of the UK’s tallest buildings.

The Shard, with its unique design, representative of modernity and the biggest building in Europe is also located in this area.
