Whatever you’re into, there’s always a show, concert or event in London that will take your breath away. For instance, fans of musicals are spoilt for choice, with classics such as ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Les Misérables’ ‘The Lion King’ and ‘Mamma Mia’ running at the West End. While London’s iconic Old Vic Theatre, currently under the creative directorship of Kevin Spacey, consistently attracts the best acting talent from the UK and beyond.
At the gallery of The Barbican, you can be part of interactive installations, such as the Rain Room, a 100 metre field of falling water that responds to human sound and movement. As you walk through, you create your own weather pattern without getting wet! Or you could take a stroll around the National Portrait Gallery and enjoy paintings and photographs of the great and famous.
And as for sport, well…London offers just about everything! There’s the Ashes at Lord’s Cricket Ground, which dates back to the 1700s, Six Nations international rugby, tennis at Wimbledon, Premiership soccer, The Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge universities, one of the world’s oldest sports events, and much more.
