Known as the Forest City, we're big enough to have everything you need - in dining, culture, entertainment, shopping, sports - but with the added plus of a friendly ambience that is reminiscent of smaller communities. Our calendar of festivals is year round, though summer is definitely the high season with special celebrations happening almost every weekend.
The buzz of London as a personal travel destination is ever growing, particularly, with our being the host venue for prestigious national and international sport and entertainment events.
