London City

London opens to you like a novel itself…It is divided into chapters, the chapters into scenes, the scenes into sentences; it opens to you like a series of rooms, doors and passages. Mayfair to Piccadilly to Soho to the Strand”

Anna Quindlen

As a Londoner, I could not agree more with the quote. A City that is 2000 years old, founded by the Romans, survived the London Fire of 1666 and the Blitz, London opens up a world of discovery, from cobbled streets to high rises – every corner has a story to tell you.
