“Hailing from the north, from a small town in Lancashire, I moved to London four years ago with big hopes, dreams and ambition – and the capital still excites me every single day. I fell in love with the city instantly, as it has its own unique energy. I never tire of the endless adventure and the opportunity it brings, the iconic views and landmarks, and the stunning London skyline.
I love its heritage, the architecture, the people-watching, the fashion, the shopping, the food, the markets, the parks and the museums (most are free too). Quintessentially British at its finest, I do love a spot of afternoon tea (The Ritz is my favourite) and I’m a sucker for a rooftop terrace too (the Sky Garden is a must).
The public transport is incredible – it’s super easy to get round the city, especially for prestigious events (think Royal Ascot, the Royal Henley Regatta and the Wimbledon Tennis Championships to name a few). And of course, you must pop along and wave to the Queen at Buckingham Palace!
I have a never ending bucket-list, even now, as there is always something to do, wonderful to see, and new to discover. I also love how each part of London – whether you head north, west, south or east – offers its own special vibe too, and that’s the joy of renting. You can move about and explore as much as you wish. The fun is finding your favourite spot and creating your very own lovely little London life.”
