As the Capitol of England and the United Kingdom, London is a major business and political hub, and is one of the largest and most visited cities in the world. Because of the constant flow of international traffic, London has become an ideal destination for the affluent. Commonly known for historical landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, London also boasts abundant opportunities for a lavish lifestyle. Extravagant neighborhoods like Knightsbridge, home to Harrods, offers the most gratifying retail therapy with fashion houses such as Dolce and Gabana, Prada, Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo. In the West End you'll find Oxford and Regent Street which similarly offers a posh array of shops, as well as an exciting selection of museums, theatres, pubs, and fine restaurants. The combination of London's rich history and its modern indulgences make it the perfect haven for the elite.
