Get to know a little more about London
London is one of the most popular and populated cities worldwide, and this cosmopolitan city is home to some of the most unmissable, iconic landmarks in the world as well as an immensely diverse population, world-class dining and entertainment and incredibly rich history. Needless to say, coming to London can be a bit intimidating. It’s the largest city not only in the United Kingdom, but in all of Europe.
London is home to over 9 million people, and it’s a popular destination for international migrants. Over the past decade, the yearly migration to London has averaged 95 thousand people per year. People from all over the globe flock to this city, and just how rich the city is in its diversity showcases this. Whereas White British-identifying individuals make up 78.4% of the population in England and Wales overall, the White British population accounts for only 43.4% of London’s overall population. This makes London a considerably more ethnically diverse city than the rest of the UK, with 40% of Londoners identifying as Black and Minority ethnic compared to England’s figure of 10%. Further, 37% of Londoners were not born in the UK – the wealth of diversity both ethnically and internationally can be felt throughout the city, with over 300 languages spoken there everyday – this is more than any other city in the world.
Coming to London, you will feel both its rich history and diversity. There is no place quite like this city in the UK when it comes to being a melting pot of varied backgrounds, languages and people.
