London is one of the world’s major capital cities, and must now be one of the most cosmopolitan. Its cultural diversity affects many aspects of the city’s life, including cuisine: London is widely regarded as having the most ethnically diverse range of food in any capital city. It must also be one of the easiest, and perhaps cheapest, places in the world to get to, and is an exceptionally easy city to move around in. It also has some of the world’s most important cultural institutions, and is a major European and international venue for many forms of the creative arts, including theatre and music.
King’s College is an international university, with a distinguished record across many discipline areas.
