Retirement homes in London

With transport links to take you all over the country, this bustling metropolis is just the place for an active yet retiring lifestyle – while still being within reach of your family and friends.

A diverse, cosmopolitan city

There really is something for everyone in London, and you might never exhaust its supply of new experiences. You'll find cuisines from all over the globe, and all of your favourite brands and shops are usually just a short journey away – as well as some that you might not find anywhere else.

This world famous capital city is a veritable cultural melting pot with plenty of festivities, events, and markets to explore.
There really is never a dull moment!

Perhaps best of all, London has one of the most extensive and reliable public transport systems in the country, and much of it runs 24 hours a day.
You can easily explore everything the city has to offer, and you might never have to think about driving at all.

If you like the idea of retiring somewhere that'll keep you stimulated and in the loop, take a look through some of our newest homes in London.

The cultural hub of England

From the dense concentration of theatres in the West End to the many world-famous museums and galleries, you'll have some of the most exciting and important shows and exhibitions on your doorstep. You could watch a game of rugby at Twickenham, take a tour of Buckingham Palace, and see a spectacular musical all in one day – and still be just half an hour away from your retirement home!

The perfect place to stay busy and active

The centre might be a highly populated urban area, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty of green, open space. There are many huge parks throughout the whole city, and there are more than 30 golf clubs in the Greater London area, such as the 18-hole course at the Royal Wimbledon Golf Club near Raynes Park. 

It might seem like retiring to London means living in a cramped and overcrowded street. But in fact, there are dozens of charming neighbourhoods just outside the centre, and many of them feel like a distinct small town of their own. You can have all the usual amenities just a short walk from your retirement apartment, and you'll also have excellent transport links for days out to the inner city.

Stay connected to the whole country

No matter where you're heading to, London has a link to it. There are five major airports for your holidays abroad, and there's a national train station for every corner of the UK – so you can easily take time out to visit your friends and family.

It's also a popular destination for those living in other parts of the country, which could mean that there's another good excuse for your friends and family to visit you, too!
