TO BUY TO LET
With a selection of luxury properties to rent, The City of London is the UK capital’s business district and one of the world’s most important financial centres.
Known colloquially as “The Square Mile”, it is an area as rich in history as it is in investment. Those who choose a City luxury property for rent, walk in the footsteps of Romans and notable British luminaries such as Samuel Johnson, Sir Christopher Wren and Charles Dickens. It is not only home to major banking institutions but also boasts some distinguished buildings and monuments, such as St Paul’s Cathedral and the Monument which commemorates the Great Fire of London.
The City of London has always been involved in trade and commercial activities, so it has retained a cosmopolitan atmosphere. It has a thriving art and cultural scene, and its restaurants are a gastronomic delight. Modern glass-fronted towers like the Gherkin stand side by side with listed buildings. The City is home to a number of premium health and fitness clubs. The area encompasses the postcodes of EC1, EC2, EC3 and EC4 and attracts ultra high-net worth individuals looking to invest in the City. Subsequently, there is an increasingly wide choice of luxury apartments to rent in the City of London.
The location appeals to single professionals and bankers who want the convenience of living close to where they work but with links to the rest of the city and beyond. The City has excellent transport connections both within London and to other cities within the UK since mainline rail services are within walking distance. For those who rent an apartment in the City and frequently have to travel overseas for work, The Stansted Express operates between Liverpool Street and Stansted Airport every 15 minutes. The area is well-served by the Underground and some of the main stations include St Paul’s, Barbican, Chancery Lane, Bank and Moorgate. The Central Line quickly transports residents to the West End and all its shops and entertainment venues. Although it has a great range of bars of its own, it is only a stone’s throw from the trendy bars of Hoxton and Shoreditch.
