Student Housing in London
The city of London has a lot to offer – whether it’s the artsy streets of East London or the vibrant West End. With iconic landmarks like the Big Ben and the Buckingham Palace, the city’s vast history dating back to 6000 BC is a testament to the legacy and heritage that has become a part of its being. The architecture around the city finds the tourists and Londoners falling in love with Baroque designs of the 1600s to the abstract Art Deco from the early 1920s. When you’re done exploring the busy city and need a quiet moment to yourself, a traditional afternoon tea or an indulgent three-course meal would be the best way to rejuvenate.

A dive into the history of London
Londinium (now London) was founded on the banks of the River Thames by the ancient Romans as a port and trading settlement around 43 A.D. A few years later they constructed a bridge across the river to facilitate the movement of goods and people. Around 60 A.D., Boudicca, a Celtic queen, led an army and had the city burned to the ground after which the city was rebuilt, but burned again around 125 A.D. During the 476 A.D. the Roman Empire fell, and the city was attacked numerous times by the Vikings and other raiders. Afterwards, London was well established as the prestigious seat of the vast British Empire when queen Victoria reigned over the city.
