London Today

London is not only the capital of the United Kingdom, but also one of the world’s financial and cultural capitals.  It is a thriving metropolis that symbolizes multiculturalism at its best, with a population of over 8 million and more than 300 different spoken languages.  Many of the world’s biggest banks and financial institutions have headquarters in London.  The city is also a centre for art, media, fashion, and education.  London was also the site for the 2012 Summer Olympics which attracted a large number of tourists to the city.

All of this, in addition to 2000 years of history, is the reason why London is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.  Few cities have as much to offer.  But be aware that London is also one of the most expensive cities in the world.
