Good morning, London

London is one of the most visited cities in the world – and with good reason. It’s a city brimming with culture, history, a buzzing nightlife and plenty of amazing food to keep you going. Let us give you a taste of what London is all about.

Let’s start the day with some great tunes before exploring England’s capital.

Music to your ears

Britpop is just one of the many movements to come out of Great Britain. It was born in the 1990s as a reaction to the darker themes of the grunge movement, and was part of of a larger British pop culture movement called Cool Britannia. Start your trip to London with a bit of Britpop.

Continue your London trip with a tasty dinner of fish and chips. Fish and chips first appeared in the UK in the 1860s, and by the first decade of the 20th century it was one of the most popular foods. During WW1 and WW2, the British government safeguarded the supply of fish and chips and it was one of the few foods in the UK not subject to rationing.
