As the cosmopolitan capital that it is, a hub for arts, culture, finance and history, it is no surprise that the London property market is in constant boom. Investing in London property will always be a safe bet when looking to make great earnings on your investments, especially with the upcoming Crossrail links that are sprouting up around the city to improve transport links, and simultaneously pushing for the redevelopment of many a rundown area. To take in the towers of flats and skyscrapers that are being built all over town as part of this property boom, here’s our list of spots in London to take in the sights and catch a glimpse of the changing shape of our city.
The palace was first opened to the public in the late 19th century as a centre of recreation, entertainment and culture used to also act as home for the BBC. Reigning over Muswell Hill and Wood Green, the beautiful stretch of land in front of the palace provides an obstacle-free view of London, equally stunning at night as it is during the day. On the palace lands are the famous ice-skating rink, boating lake and pub. Check out the Palace website to find out more about events and concerts that take place all year round.

This shopping centre, the largest in the City of London, is still relatively unfamiliar as a sightseeing spot. It is located near St Paul’s on Cheapside and is your average shopping centre, filled with places to eat and the most popular high-street shops. However, head to the top floor for spectacular views of the city atop its rooftop terrace. Visit after work and enjoy a cocktail at sunset!
Home to the Prime Meridian Line, Royal Observatory and Greenwich Maritime World Heritage Site, this famous, well-maintained and historic royal park is great for getting out of the congestion of the city. Hike up the park hill to reach the statue of General Wolfe and enjoy a stunning view that extends for miles, and spot all of London’s most famous skyscrapers.
Head to the ‘Walkie-Talkie’ building, as it is nicknamed for its curious design, to visit the rooftop Sky Garden. The top floor is a stunning and creative landscape garden that opened this January, which provides clear views of the city. Make sure to book ahead as reservations fill up quickly for this trendy vista spot.
