Explore cosmopolitan London

With more than 300 languages spoken, the British capital is a joyful mix of cultures, religions and traditions. Discover the multicultural face of the city in figures.

200,000 Indians, 40,000 Chinese, 66,000 French and almost as many Americans and Italians… With its innumerable nationalities, London is a veritable crossroads of civilisation.

On Brick Lane, exotic specialities take centre stage. During the Sunday market, the street bustles with stalls selling Pakistani, Indian and Chinese fare while traditional Jewish shops offer up bagels to passers-by. It is an incredible festival of world flavours.

In the neighbourhood of South Kensington, you can taste genuine French pastries at Maître Choux. Eclairs, profiteroles and sugar-sprinkled pastry puffs decorate the window of this unique shop located in London's French quarter.

Further south you will find yourself in a marvellous melting pot of cultures in Brixton. At the Brixton Village covered market, Caribbean, Japanese and American cuisine will satisfy the taste buds of connoisseurs and amateurs alike.

Even in the touristy neighbourhood of Covent Garden you will find little-known gems with a faithful expat following. Bar Italia is the place to be for transplanted Italians and fans of top-notch espresso.

All around this global city, cultures coexist and share their traditions. It is a paradise for curious travellers looking for new discoveries!
