They have a French capital which beats the imagination of individuals with its Michelin star restaurants, amazing destinations, a lot of fun centers, and parks, yet London is still the choice of most Nigerians.

With all these amazing things that Paris has to offer, you might be wondering why Nigerians still prefer London.

10 Reasons why Nigerians Prefer London to Paris

1. Diversity


London has everything needed to offer. Most people say that the Yoruba’s have dominated London. This may tell you how the city has become a second home to many Nigerians.

You feel at home when you are in London and once in a while, you may bump into relatives. It seems that almost the whole world has come to London to make their abode.

This diversity is one of the factors that have made London one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

2. Education

Today, almost every Nigerian wants to study in London. There are so many standard schools that have been built to be more friendly and conducive and outstanding for Nigerians to study in.

This is why we see thousands of Nigerians applying for students’ visas to the UK.

3. Time Travel

Why Nigerians Prefer London to Paris Checkout These Reasons

Here, we are talking about destinations in London that have been greatly immersed in history. You can take your pick among the Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, and Hampton to name a few of the places that would blow you far off.

The buildings have fascinating milestones scattered around the city in a compelling and unique biography manner.

When it comes to trendy innovations, think of the Gherkin, the Aquatics Center, and The Shard. Nigerians love the ancient remains punctuating the city here and there.

3. Tourist Haven

Tourists love Londoon

Most people argue Paris is more beautiful and more charming with its numerous fantastic destinations.

No doubt about that, but the number of visitors who come to London has shown that there is more to London than the eyes see compared to Paris.

London can be said to be the world’s greatest city with its best theatre scene and fascinating museums in the world. It has more green space than most cities in Europe.

London is widely acclaimed for its breathtaking attractions and splendid architecture marvels. The city has its roots dig deep into history.

Nigerians coming to the city can take up any tour through which they can catch a glimpse of some miraculous landmarks.

4. Language Communication

Paris is notoriously proud when it comes to communicating with their language, French.

Nigerians find it extremely difficult getting their messages passed to the natives. Even those who can speak the English Language pretend not to understand English.

In London, the famous language is English and that is our official language. Language and communication play a vital role in Nigerian’s love for London.

They find it very easy to flow with the natives. Even if they can’t roll their tongue like the Londoners when speaking English, they are still certain that communication won’t be a problem compared to Paris where French is used as their means of communication.

Very few Nigerians understand French which is the native language in Paris. The difficulty and thought of learning a new language are what deters a lot of Nigerians from going to Paris.

Nigeria like London, the lifestyle in Nigeria is quite similar to what operates in London. It has the same brand of ‘good’, ‘bad’ and ‘ugly’, and Nigerian’s can operate in the system without a glitch.

Being in Nigeria has toughened the body of most people and sharpened their senses so it is like going to a twin land when in London.

6. Housing Expenses

The truth is housing in both cities are incredibly overpriced. You may argue that Paris is cheaper when it comes to London, but finding an apartment to live is easier in London to Paris.

The filing of paper for an apartment in Paris is something that you may not wish to try because of the various documents and papers to file. The competition is less fierce in London.

7. Daily Living Expenses

Buying things like groceries may not be as expensive as you think in London. Unless you are out to spend big like a millionaire, it is cheaper to eat out when you come to London.

Nigerians are always looking out for cuts and discounts when they travel. This is one of the reasons they prefer this city.

London offers a cool offer when it comes to shopping. Nigerians are very adept at finding and getting the best bargain.

They even like it more when the option for a discount is available and London has that a lot. Paris has a great offer when it comes to shopping too but Nigerians prefer the London brand.

8. Art & Culture

There is no doubt that Paris has plenty of art and culture too. However, the galleries and museums littered neatly around the city of London are unbelievable.

London has a lot of these free galleries to visit and the creativities surrounding these places are simply astonishing.

9. Football
