Insights: London (2001)
London, the largest city in Europe, is a truly cosmopolitan melting pot. It is where cultures merge and where the old and the new work together to create a vibrant energy that’s not to be missed. Over the course of its rich history, it’s been the capital of a great empire and a global centre of new developments and opportunities. Millions of tourists visit London every year to experience the unique combination of ancient British traditions and modern bustling city life, despite the weather.
The fastest, easiest and cheapest way to get around is by Tube, the underground rail system used by most Londoners. Clear maps and signs make it relatively simple for anyone new to the city to get around. Although the British kitchen is best known for its Bangers and Mash, London proves to be a city offering culinary delights from all over the world. For a slower pace, Green Park, St James' Park and Hyde Park, are all within a few minute's walk of the West End. This is where London’s grandeur is on display: stately buildings that have witnessed the passage of time. Whether you're in London for business or pleasure, there is always something to do.
