About London

London is known as the financial center of the United Kingdom as well as the capital of England. Previously given the title of the world’s most visited city and with almost 9,000,000 inhabitants in the Greater London area, it is a popular tourist destination as well as a crowded city to live in. The city has known its fair share of struggles, with the Plague killing 70,000 Londoners in 1665 and a huge fire burning the town down only a year later. Although it took almost 10 years to rebuild, the city now stands stronger than ever and is a hub for entertainment and production.

London has served as inspiration for many movies including the famous Harry Potter franchise, and even some scenes from a James Bond film were shot here. Being a town that is familiar with performance arts such as plays, movies and live entertainment, it would be great to host a performance space in London.

Advantages
