A little bit about the city: London
As the English capital, London is known to be a city full of opportunities. From cultures, foods, activities, and greenspace, everything is at your doorstep in this city and there is something for everyone to enjoy. London Fashion Week, Michelin-star restaurants and festivals are just a few of the many delights London has to offer those looking for a taste of the city. London is, of course, famous for its extensive history, culture, and attractions. Many of London’s museums and galleries are free to enter, meaning, especially as a newcomer to London, you are easily able to absorb the knowledge and arts the city has to offer.
Fortunately for the many commuters, public transport is one thing the city can be really proud of. London is well-known for its widespread underground system, boasting 11 lines stretching 402km in total. Additionally, the Night Tube, a 24-hour service, is available on Fridays and Saturdays, making getting home after an evening exploring or catching up with friends a breeze. Aside from the Tube, London offers buses, river buses, black cabs, ‘Boris Bikes’ and trams, so getting around the city should never be a problem!
Keep Calm and waka waka...
