Are you a die-hard city lover?

You know, the type who thrives on the crowds, the energy, the noise, and even the occasional squalor of an urban environment—and who doesn’t mind sacrificing space and paying a fortune for the privilege of having all that culture and activity right outside your front door?

Well, City centre living can be extremely exciting and brings with it many benefits. While some yearn for rolling green hills and quaint country cottages, others will want to be right at the heart of the action in the hustle and bustle of the city. If you’re thinking about laying down roots in the vibrant heart of London or other similar big cities, here are just a few top perks to city centre living.

Social Events
There are no two ways about it: when it comes to socialising, few places can beat the city. From fantastic bars and restaurants to cafes, cinemas, theatres and social meet-up groups, London is a great place to meet friends old and new. London has an incredible night-life and, if you’re not already paired up, a great dating scene. Few places are so exciting when it comes to hanging out with old friends and making new ones.

Arts, culture and history
London is well-known for its incredible cultural and arts highlights, with everything from the National Portrait Gallery to Tate Modern, the British Museum to London Aquarium. Whatever you’re interested in, there will be a museum, gallery or community centre to cater to your tastes. Even if you’re working the 9-5 in the city, many of the major arts and cultural hubs will stay open late, so you can still enjoy them after office hours.

Top Quality Shopping
Oxford Street, Charing Cross Road, Harrods – what’s not to love? If the major department stores and shopping streets aren’t enough of a temptation to city centre living, there are plenty of incredible local markets selling all kinds of wonderful things. Check out Borough Market or Smithfield if you’re a foodie and want some great fresh-from-the-market produce to sink your teeth into.

The food

Still on the subject of food and drink, London has some of the best restaurants in the world, including numerous Michelin starred establishments. This is a foodie’s paradise.

Property is also one of the major perks of city living, with property developments in city centre locations defying the national trend and continuing to go up in value. From luxury apartments to large family homes, there’s no shortage of incredible living space with all these perks right on your new front doorstep.
