London UK

#LondonIsOpen and more popular than ever. Guests from around the world are coming to experience the diversity we hold dear. Thanks to city laws that have provided clear and simple rules around home sharing, Airbnb’s London community is now driving a behavioural shift: More and more guests are opting for authentic experiences beyond the city centre and tourist hotspots, seeking places to stay in the communities Londoners really call home. Guest spending in local businesses and neighbourhoods inevitably follow — to the benefit of all Londoners.

2.1M guest arrivals in London in the past year

64,000 hosts who have welcomed guests in the past year

£3,000 annual earnings for a typical host
