Historic and contemporary, sophisticated and scruffy—London's the city that does it all. Its sprawling boroughs reach out from the River Thames to the infamous M25, the circular motorway that divides the city from the suburbs. Whether it's live theater at Shakespeare's Globe or DJ sets in the East End, Londoners see themselves as tastemakers to the world, so throw yourself into its cultural life, its bar scene, and its restaurants before you get the last tube home.
