London is infused with international verve and is as dynamic as it is captivating. The city is founded upon over two millennia of history, yet it embraces the future and constantly reinvents itself. Legendary landmarks commingle with modern architecture at nearly every turn, making London one of the most exciting cities to visit as well as an interesting place to live. London is a melting pot of world cultures and cuisines and boasts one of the most exciting contemporary art scenes in Europe, if not the world. Even its “lingo” expresses the diverse ethnic and cultural makeup of the city’s population as it has evolved from cockney to a mixture of words and phrases from around the globe. London’s neighborhoods, locally known as ‘boroughs,’ effortlessly combine traditional pageantry with the innovative, cutting-edge and contemporary.
