The United Kingdom was once a great empire that stretched across much of the known world and, although it is no longer the global power it once was, it remains a powerful international player and retains significant economic, cultural, political and military influence. It is an exceptional place to visit, to live and to do business in. Moreover, London is one of the world’s largest financial centres, as well as a terrific place to do business.

The UK has long been a respected model of law and governance for many countries, and its common law and parliamentary systems have been adopted by numerous countries including Australia, Canada and India. The UK also boasts many of the world’s top universities, meaning there is a wide range of options for education and a continuous supply of top talent for business. Furthermore, the national healthcare system (the NHS), as well as the medical facilities, and standards of care are of exceptional quality.

From the beautiful scenery of the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands, to the buzzing cosmopolitan scene of London and the rich history of Oxford and Edinburgh, there truly is something for everyone in the UK. It remains a top tourist destination and has excellent transport links to the rest of Europe and beyond. Considering the UK’s connectedness, its convenience and its quality of life, it is no surprise it is high on people’s lists when it comes to second residency options.
