Living in London

London is rightly said to be the most diverse city in the world with its endless variety of art, culture, sports, restaurants and nightlife. It’s a city where you’ll never have a dull moment and where you can experience some of the most unique attractions in the world.

Art and culture

London is home to fascinating museums, breathtaking art galleries and famous music venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and Alexandra Palace. It also boasts the West End, where you can catch some of the world’s best theatre productions.

Restaurants and nightlife

Whatever your taste buds desire, London can cater for it all. Whether you’re visiting Borough Market to buy your own fresh ingredients, checking in at Chinatown for some authentic cuisine or even visiting The Ritz for a lavish fine dining experience, London has it all.

The same is true for the nightlife. London has an amazing scene for both comedy and music with venues like Hammersmith Apollo and The Comedy Club or Brixton Academy and KOKO. If dance music is more your thing, Ministry of Sound and Fabric will not disappoint.


London is home to the three most popular sports in the UK. Football can be found all over London with famous clubs like Arsenal in the north and Chelsea in the south. Meanwhile, the iconic Wembley Stadium is in the west; it hosts many events including England’s international games.

The home of cricket, Lord's, can be found just next to Regents Park. Meanwhile, a short tube or train journey to south west London brings you to Twickenham, where England Rugby resides.

Not only can you watch just about any sport in London but we encourage you to take part, too. There are opportunities to play all throughout the capital: it’s a great way to make friends and keep fit.
