London is among the oldest of the world’s great cities—its history spanning nearly two millennia—and one of the most cosmopolitan. By far Britain’s largest metropolis, it is also the country’s economic, transportation, and cultural centre. London grew from three distinct centres: the walled settlement founded by the Romans on the banks of the Thames in the 1st century CE, today known as the City of London, “the Square Mile,” or simply “the City”; facing it across the bridge on the lower gravels of the south bank, the suburb of Southwark; and a mile upstream, on a great southward bend of the river, the City of Westminster. In London, you have a huge variety of event and conference venues to choose from so you really can find the perfect venue for your business, brand or product. It may be that you want a unique and funky venue that reflects your personality or a purpose-built venue that provides unrivalled facilities and is designed to meet the needs of even the most demanding delegate. With around 2000 events venues in London, there is one out there for you and it will fit like a glove. Transport – With five airports and several train stations, London is one of the world’s most connected and accessible cities. It is also an easy city to navigate once you arrive: there’s the ‘London Underground’ subway system, the ubiquitous black taxis and even red buses enabling delegates to get around. The 2012 Olympics improved infrastructure further still, meaning that travel to and around London is better than ever. The capital is a big hitter in terms of tourist attractions. From Buckingham Palace to the London Eye, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre to the Shard, London mixes a rich and varied history with the contemporary. Once your event is concluded for the day, your delegates will be able to experience a whole host of famous landmarks in walking distance or just soak up that unique London atmosphere. London is big on entertainment – whether you want to catch a play in the West End or experience an exhilarating live gig, take in some opera or settle in for a session in one of London’s many watering holes – it’s got it covered. The dining options are numerous, the culture is unrivalled and the nightlife is second to none. An event in London does not end with the final session.
