London has been a major settlement for over two thousand years. Nestled on the River Thames, this ancient port was christened Londinium by the Romans in the 1st Century AD and has played host to an exhilarating array of historical events ever since. Today, London is a leading global city, home to over 8 million people and full of enticing culture. More than 300 languages are spoken within the city's boundaries, so people from all over the world are sure to feel right at home.
Imperial College London is situated in the heart of the leafy borough of Kensington, which was made famous by J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. Established in 1945, Imperial College is often ranked among the top universities in the world and is well-known for its high international student count. Some of the university's most famous alumni include Alexander Fleming, H.G. Wells, Rajiv Gandhi and Brian May.
Some of the most iconic attractions in the world are situated in London, including Big Ben, the Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe and the London Aquarium. Tourists will find something to interest everyone, from historic houses and cultural museums to skyline views and boat trips down the Thames.
London is home to an incredible range of museums, guaranteed to fascinate even the most disinterested individuals. Some of the most famous institutions are situated close to Imperial College, including the V&A Museum, which is packed full of incredible pieces of art and the Natural History Museum, containing hundreds of animal specimens, skeletons and fossils. For those interested in combat, the Imperial War Museum transports visitors back to the times of rationing and tactics, with immersive exhibits and displays.
London's West End is full of theatres showing critically-acclaimed performances every day and night. Ardent theatre-goers can be seen queueing at box offices for tickets at all hours, eagerly waiting for their evening of escapism. From loud musicals with dazzling costumes and hypnotising choreography to laugh-out-loud performances with mesmerising sets, London's West End has it all.
Getting around London is surprisingly easy, despite the sprawling nature of the city. Many Londoners opt for public transport, with the world-famous London Underground proving a popular choice. The Underground, or Tube, is a complex system of subterranean trains that connect the city, only 45% of which are actually underground routes. Alternatively, traditional red double decker buses and black cabs circulate the city, providing overground transport in famous London icons.
