Along with the likes of Paris, Milan and New York, London is one of those cities that has always been associated with the high life, attracting the rich and famous in their droves to its many classy bears, restaurants, hotels and other attractions.
However, according to the latest figures, the British capital has now eclipsed all other cities on the planet in terms of glitz and glamour, with more billionaires now living there than in any other major metropolis.
In fact, the UK is now home to more billionaires that any other country in the world, with 104 of those who qualify for this title residing in the country.
Of those, no fewer than 74 live in London – meaning the city is the permanent residence of more than ten per cent of the world’s billionaires.
So, if you fancy living the lifestyle of the super-rich then a trip to the capital could be just what you need, with loads of luxury restaurants and hotels to choose from in order to add a touch of elegance to your visit.
For a look at some of the places that the wealthiest Londoners hang out, be sure to head to areas like Mayfair – which is, of course, the most expensive square on the Monopoly board – and Chelsea, which has a reputation for its swanky bars.
Indeed, by heading to the borough of Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, you’re more than likely to run into a celebrity two, particularly if visiting after daylight hours, when the clubs and bars in the area tend to be filled with famous faces.
For a truly luxurious experience in the capital, be sure to book a stay in a hotel that’s fit for a billionaire, with the likes of the Montcalm Hotel being among the top places to stay if you’re looking to live the high life.
