The most recent estimate of households in London is 3,494,980.

(Figure for mid-2018; source ONS 2018-based household projections).

It is important to note that this is an estimate and not a count. The census records the number of households in census year (the last being 2011) and subsequent years are estimated by applying assumptions about household formation to population estimates.
