Five Reasons Why I Prefer London over New York

Without any doubt, in the world, two of the greatest cities are London and New York. Often times, there has been a hot argument on which of the two cities is the best place to live in.

Having spent quite some time in both cities, I will make a case for London with these five superb points. Here are the reasons London makes a better habitation when compared to New York.

  1. Superb Architecture

London and New York offer iconic architectural structures. There are breathtaking structures that are very unique in their style which expresses the history of both cities.

The style of building in London, however, does have something about it. Especially in the center of London, there are structures that make London preferable than New York. Take a careful look at St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace etc. These are all unique in their style spanning over hundreds of years that have lived through many generations.

  1. Spacious Inner City Parks

Of course, I admit that New York is blessed with the impressive Central Park; it still doesn’t match the city parks in London. London is blessed with many beautiful open spaces where you can escape to and get a feel of nature.

Spreading across 790 acres, Hampstead Heath is one of the largest parks in London. It features swimming lidos, huge ponds, and small woods. You can enjoy music at the Regent’s Park and Finsbury in North London

  1. Ever Evolving Pop up Fashion Stores

If you are not really passionate about fashion, keeping in touch with London’s changing fashion sense will be hard. There are varieties of stores offering something unique from the other stores. This, oftentimes, can be seen in form of a special collection or collaboration.

We have seen the amazing and unique release of Reformation, Rixo London ad Maje into the retail landscape.

  1. Huge Football Stadiums

If you are a football fan, I am pretty sure you will love it here in London. Besides, your visit to the city will not be complete without a trip to one of the stadium. London prides itself in having more football clubs in and around the city than anywhere in the world.

Wembly, the largest football stadium in London features 90,000 seats. The Emirates, the old Olympic Stadium located in Stratford etc all make life in London interesting, as a football fan.

  1. Boutique Gyms

New York and London have a never-ending directory of fitness studios and gyms. London stands out in that it has a diversity of gyms like running clubs, outdoor boot camps etc. There are low-cost gyms as well that charge as low as £30 for a class giving the average Londoner the chance to work out.

There are many fitness centers around with cheap sessions but we recommend trying a couple of them before committing to determine the perks for you.

Life in London is definitely worth it. With the reasons above, I bet you see why London has stolen my heart.
