London — Get To Know Europe's Biggest City!
London is the most exciting city in which to live and work. It is a huge multicultural, noisy metropolis that will challenge everything you thought you knew about the Brits.
Whether you're interested in music, clubbing, eating out, theater, the arts, history or sports, London has it all. From the legendary King's Road through the bustle of street markets such as Brick Lane and Portobello, to the world-famous Harrods, there is shopping to suit every style and taste.
London is a world financial and commercial center, as shown by an ever-changing skyline of award-winning, twenty-first century architecture. For business, politics, media and public life, this is the center of the UK.
Living in London
London is more like a patchwork of neighborhoods, so it's an easy city to settle into and get to know despite its size and vibrancy. It is also very easy to get around thanks to an extensive public transportation system.
If a "big city" environment doesn't sound like your thing, don't worry. London is a green city. There are many spacious parks and quiet squares in its center and wide open spaces on its outskirts.
The EPA London program not only set me up with a terrific internship; they also were an active part of my experience. They took us on a Thames river cruise and a tour of Greenwich, and hosted a fantastic going away dinner at a historic London pub. I really enjoyed every aspect.
