London isn’t just a great city for you to live in – the crème de la crème of the entertainment world deem it appropriate for their lifestyles too.
It is something of a tribute to Londoners themselves that many celebs are able to lead more normal lives in London and many celebrities moving to London in 2014 are doing so to escape the hordes of fans and paps in the US. Whilst the paparazzi are always ready to capture the perfect photo, there is no sense of frenzy surrounding celebrities living in London. After you settle into life in London you will be able to casually ignore (while still gawking at) the many celebs that have made London home.
Their London apartments may be larger and their wardrobes more expensive, but celebs living in London really do try to blend into this busy city. If you’re looking to get to meet some really famous people then there are a number of bars and clubs that have a fair sprinkling of celebs. Of course, by the time you’ve discovered them, they may have moved on to the next hot and happening place. Keeping up with celebs living in London is hard work. Nonetheless, classics like The Ivy, Nobu and Le Caprice will always remain famous favourites.
By the way, just in case you think this article is slightly tongue in cheek, I once followed Hugh Jackman for about three blocks, and onto the tube. It happens to the best of us!
The most famously famous people who have chosen to make London their home all tend to live in Chelsea, Kensington and Hampstead, so if you’re in the market for some famous neighbors then these are the places to rent your new London apartment. Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow are residents of London and rumor has it that the famous songstress and entrepreneur has a home in Notting Hill, or is it Mayfair? We’re not telling! Johnny Depp has a home in London as does Kevin Spacey who has made London’s Theatreland his home and life’s passion.
It’s not really all about famous celebs from around the world who have chosen London as their home. After all just like the rest of us when it comes to choosing to live in one of the world’s most fascinating cities. There are a number of famous Londoners who have made the world’s headlines and have had a massive impact on the entertainment and arts on a global scale.
Historically, one of the most famous residents of London was the writer Samuel Pepys, his accounts of life in London, and especially the Great Fire of London have been an important part in recording the history of the city. William Shakespeare, who played such an important part in the establishment of the theatre in England, was a notable London resident. The Bard has had possibly the greatest influence on the entertainment world. Much of what we consider entertainment today was pioneered in his plays and shows on the stage in London. I can continue…Charles Dickens, Alfred Hitchcock and even Charlie Chaplin are native Londoners who have influenced the art world and continue to inspire and thrill to this day.
The most important part about being a celebrity citizen of London is that the city inspires greatness. The celebrity culture isn’t as insulated as America, we operate with dignity and that idea is important not only for Adele, Elle Macpherson and Claudia Schiffer but all of us. Living in London will inspire you to shine, no matter what field you are in. Perhaps that is what draws so many notable notables to the city.
