Europe's largest city and capital of the United Kingdom is cosmopolitan and surprising in a way which never fails to draw in and seduce its visitors. Most enticing is its mixture of epochs, architectual styles and ambiences, giving the impression that anything is possible. Dynamic and visionary, London is at the cutting edge, constantly reinventing itself. Respectful of its national heritage yet accepting of differences, it merits exploration (naturally with a dose of typical British eccentricity).
Savile Row gets its name from Lady Dorothy Savile, the Countess of Burlington, who died in 1758. It’s a small street located in Mayfair, behind the Royal Academy of Arts, made famous worldwide for its men’s tailor shops.
