When the capital’s new mayor Sadiq Khan officially launched the #LondonIsOpen campaign this summer, he proudly declared that "London is the best city in the world". Some may argue about the subjectivity of that statement, but with its hive of international and creative talent, England’s capital is this decade’s destination for start-ups and entrepreneurs travelling from around the world.


London's best multicultural venues

London: Traditional venues vs. quirky concepts

London: Property pipeline

London: Grandes Dames vs boutique boltholes

London: Street eats vs. fine dining


London has a history as a multicultural city, which has laid the foundations for a bright future thanks to an arsenal of ideas and invention that have benefited communities, businesses and government for centuries.

The footprints of this legacy are found in London’s cultural and historic venues, which have helped to support and celebrate the diversity within communities around the city. Event planners are gifted with choice and variety in London, where most venues have a unique story to tell.

Over the course of this week, C&IT spotlights some of those venues, from multicultural hubs to boutique hotels, as well as the best of what’s to come.
