Your new neighborhood
London, as Great Britain’s capital, is located at an exposed place next to the mouth of the Themes in South England. The greater area of London is with 14 million people one of the largest metropolitan areas of the world. Britain has a distinctive history of colonialization. Many people of those former colonies are now living in Great Britain. Especially in London, you can feel a multicultural atmosphere, caused by the colorful mixed population structure. Furthermore, are historical buildings sign of this glorious and powerful era. London has grown to a diverse and to future trends orientated city. Today, London counts to the most important financial and economic centers worldwide. But this process still has its shady sides. One part of those is that the costs of living in London became much more expensive with its exorbitant progress of the real estate market.
