Location & Culture

Click to Open

Shakespeare’s Globe Theater rests humbly in the theater district among trendy restaurants. Modern sensibility spills beyond the walls of the Tate Modern (a museum that was once a power plant) and onto the futuristic Millennium Bridge, a stark contrast to the traditions of Westminster and Buckingham Palace. More than 250 languages are spoken here in the capital of the United Kingdom, making London the most linguistically diverse city in the world. In addition, London is at the cutting-edge of the arts scene and provides access to music, fashion, museums, comedy, and theater.
