Last year, The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “There is so much to love about London with our incredible cultural attractions, world-class shops, bars and restaurants, and, most importantly of all, the fantastic people who live here. That’s why London is the greatest city in the world. I’m delighted that my tourism campaign has already generated tens of millions of pounds for our economy and attracted hundreds of thousands to our city and I want to encourage even more people to make the most of our capital as we build a better London for everyone."
