The Big Smoke, as it is affectionally know is the United Kingdom’s largest city, and the capital of England. It is home to over 8 million People with history dating back to Roman times. London is littered with imposing architecture, iconic monuments and historic buildings, many of which are now home to museums, theatres or galleries. As in all great cities, the old is juxtaposed by the new with modern features such as the London Eye or 30 St. Mary (aka The Gherkin) nestling unapologetically between the historic landmarks.
This dramatic contrast is not only reserved for the buildings, as London has arguably the greatest cultural diversity of all cities and the streets of this bustling metropolis reflect this through the people, cuisine, the arts and even retail.
London is a hive of activity all day, every day. There’s simply no ‘off switch’ so its little wonder why tourists flock to this great city to take advantage of the hundreds of restaurants, cafes, wine bars and pubs; theatres, museums, art galleries and not forgetting the iconic shopping experience such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Fortnum and Mason or designer row and Bond Street, which is renowned for its exclusive brands, designer fashion, fine jewels, art and antiques.
With all this delight for the senses and hedonistic nightlife to be found in one tantalising destination, it’s no wonder that this hub of activity is also home to some of the best escort agencies in the country of which Heavenly Courtesans is one.
London’s busy day time activity continues into the night0, but with added ‘joie de vivre’ with highlights to include Camden, Soho and South Kensington. All three of which offer up entertainment reaching from lively bohemian nightlife and hippy hangouts, to chic restaurant and exclusive clubs.
It’s impossible to talk about London without mentioning the arts and there certainly much on offer. There are 39 theatres in London’s West End alone, so it would be impossible not to find something that tickles your fancy. If live music is your scene, there are countless venues showcasing music of every genre. Grand venues such as the iconic Round House, Alexandra Palace and of course the O2 academy get the headlines, but there are also a multitude of ‘grass roots’ music venues, such as The Windmill in Brixton that help support new talent and offer vibes perhaps a bit more off the ‘beaten track’.
Every art form is represented in London. Visit the beautiful Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to partake in a spot of high art culture such as the Ballet, or visit The Royal Albert Hall where the interior is spectacular, let alone the amazing acts that adores its stage.

Getting about in London couldn’t be easier. The underground connects the city with effortless ease and the bus network is a joy to ride, as you can view the city in all its glory as you wind through its busy streets.

Large train networks feed the city from all over the country so getting in and out of London is also relatively straightforward. There are two airports (one at the end of the underground line) so visiting London from abroad is straightforward and uncomplicated
