Poised along the banks of the River Thames, London offers history and culture at every turn. With a population of over seven million, London is Europe’s largest city. Its frenetic business and financial center was—more than two millennia ago—the place where Romans first founded the city as Londinium. Now, businesses, premium retail centers and an array of restaurants and stylish hotels pepper the London cityscape in endless profusion.
In London, Marriott hotel guests quickly find that history is tangible at sites like Westminster Abbey, British Museum and Tower of London. Medieval-era walls and pristine Georgian Squares are common sights, even on a casual stroll, while elsewhere in the city, venues like Olympic Park, Hyde Park and Wembley Stadium boast state-of-the-art facilities for concert-goers and, of course, devotees of European football.
When you strike out from your hotel’s front door in London, you’ll be greeted by a thrillingly fast pace and array of attractions. Nowhere does this hold truer than in the city’s nightlife, where the UK capital’s true versatility reveals itself in layers. Whether you’d prefer to have just a few pints at a rustic gastropub or search for the city’s most elusive and exclusive dance clubs, you’ll find there’s something for everyone.
