It's all about London when it comes to luxury living. The UK's capital city continues to reinforce its reputation as the world's top destination for luxury retail, restaurants and of course residential property.
According to Savills' recent Global Luxury Retail report, more luxury retailers opened stores in London than any other city and these top brands continue to align their names to the bright lights of London.
The West End retail district expects to grow annual turnover by about 27% over the next few years to a massive €11.3bn by 2020. The appetite for luxury is getting stronger in the capital and set to grow.
For the shopping, the shows and the chance to live like a local, here are three very different luxury Five Star rentals in London:
King's Cross Delight is a cool and contemporary four bedroom, two bathroom home right in the heart of King's Cross. The stunning neutral tones and carefully chosen furniture give the space a designer feel and a bright and airy luxury look. There's much-coveted outdoor dining space and this house, which sleeps 8, is the most perfect spot to sample London living at its best.
A roof terrace, fitness room and a home cinema are some of the lavish touches of luxury in this Central London retreat. The four bedroom, three bathroom home in Bayswater has a modern open plan feel and while it is right at the heart of central London it's on a quiet road within walking distance of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.
Soho is where it is at when it comes to nightlife and the beating pulse of London. This award-winning luxury townhouse is not to be missed and is one of the few Victorian townhouses in the area. This spectacular home is split over six floors and there is a stunning waterfall feature that brings the outside in. The roof garden is one of the highlights of this special luxury home.
Get set for London living with luxury all the way.
