History & Culture in London

London is deeply soaked in history which can be seen in the antique buildings and landscapes. In the 17th century, London lost one-fifth of its population in the Great Plague and then the Great Fire of London caused massive destruction. Since then, the city has rebuilt itself and grown multifold. In terms of population, London is a city of multicultural people. Thousands of people came to London seeking work as a result of the Industrial Revolution. At the beginning of the 20th century immigrants from other European countries came and later people from Britain’s colonies settled in London. 

The city is a paradise for art and theatre enthusiasts. The British Museum is one of the oldest and largest museums in the world, housing more than seven million artifacts from across the world, across eras. The National Gallery houses a great selection of European paintings while the Tate Gallery has works of modern art. London’s theatres still perform the best renditions of the works of Shakespeare and the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden hosts big orchestras. As you look for a cultural dose in the city, it is always a great idea to visit neighborhoods rather than particular attractions to really enjoy the vibe of a place. And do it all while you walk (a lot!) and commute on a hop-on-hop-off bus – that’s indeed the best way to see London.
