With a rich heritage, London is a bustling and dynamic capital. World-renowned as the city of entertainment London boasts:

- Numerous world-class art galleries such as the Tate, Tate Modern and the National Gallery.
- Over 200 museums, from the world-famous British Museum and Victoria & Albert museum to the less well-known, but equally impressive, Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum and Photographer’s Gallery.
- One of the world’s coolest clubbing scenes including the Ministry of Sound London which attracts 5000 people each weekend.
- Markets for all tastes including the infamous gourmet Borough Market for foodies, Covent Garden for handicrafts and ancient Portobello Road market; selling everything from fruit and bread to posters, vintage and designer clothes and, of course, loads of antiques since the 1800s.
