The city is well-known for its heritage, including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, and the historic settlement of Greenwich. London Underground is the oldest urban railway network in the world.

Technology workers in London earn 60pc more than the city average, with the figure even higher for foreign born workers, who earned 28pc more than their British counterparts in tech jobs. London can be considered as a center for professional relocation. Furthermore, there are over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies' headquarters in London.

The city is famous for unpredictable weather. For instance, it could be cold, warm and rainy in one day and it’s often the topic of conversation across the city.

    We want to make energy simpler – so we make people's lives easier. This means an end to tariff trickery and no jargon. Just one simple variable tariff, clear information about their energy and an energy specialist on the end of a phone if you do have any questions. We want to make energy cheaper – so we help people save money. Our tariff offers the lowest renewable energy price in the UK. (And one of the best from any provider, full stop). We want to make energy greener – so we help protect our planet. We supply 100% green electricity and 10% green gas, sourced from a number of independent renewable generators from across the UK. And we're constantly looking to improve. By obsessively listening to our members we want to make the whole energy industry better.
