A temple of English classicism yet ultra trendy, realm of business and the avant-garde, the city where Shakespeare lived is exhilarating, enchanting, diverse and dynamic. The nerve centre of capitalism in Europe, home of all manner of cultural experimentation, London is an enigmatic city, a mosaic of different quarters and full of contradictions.
London has an extraordinary cultural heritage. The city is an artful blend of modern and contemporary architecture and it hosts innumerable museums, most of which are free. London is also the city par excellence of musical comedies and theatres.
The capital lives as much by night as by day, with 5,250 pubs and clubs of international repute; it caters for every taste.
The London Sales are famous worldwide and Christmas shopping in the capital is an absolute must. Whether you are looking for the big department stores, the small designer boutiques or vintage shops, London is the city for shopping.
While the pubs in the capital are the places to find traditional English dishes, the chic restaurants are where the difference really shows. Indeed most of the best international chefs are based in London. English cuisine is not the only cuisine in London. On the contrary, the capital is packed with foreign restaurants offering a variety of European cuisine as well as more exotic dishes.
In London, you’re just bound to find what you’re looking for.
