Retirement properties in London
Retirement properties in London tend to be located outside the city centre in suburbs such as Upper Norwood, Willesden Green, Harrow and Barnet. This offers older residents the best of both worlds – a quieter, community-focused place to live and easy access to all this city has to offer.

Retiring to the city of London may not be everyone’s cup of tea, however the city does have a surprising number of green open parks such as Hampstead Heath and Hyde Park to the north of the river and Clapham Common and Richmond Park to the south. This offers a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Known as one of the top culture and entertainment cities of the world, London has plenty of attractions and areas to visit such as Hyde Park, the market at Covent Garden, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, Kensington Palace or the Cutty Sark at Greenwich just to name a few!
There are a variety of clubs for older people to join in London and GetActiveLondon provides full listing including bowls and tennis clubs in your area. In addition, there is a local Age UK working in every borough of London, offering services such as information and advice, healthy living services and financial brokerage. They also run clubs and activities such as Thai Chi, chair exercises, bingo, scrabble and iPad classes so there is something for everyone.
London has fantastic transport links and the Major of London has introduced the Freedom Pass Extension where older Londoners can apply for the Freedom Pass and the 60+ Oyster photocard Scheme making it even easier to get around the city.
