Welcome to London, the capital city of England.

The arts and culture are major forces behind London’s status as a world-class, vibrant and diverse city.
The region covers the City of London, 12 Inner London boroughs and 20 Outer London boroughs. It is home to some of the world’s best known art and cultural organisations and a huge range of small and independent organisations that work internationally, nationally, regionally and locally to provide great art and culture for everyone
