    London is also a cultural capital and a world centre for the creative industries. It is where digital and media start-ups thrive, and where internationally renowned museums and galleries (many of which are free) sit alongside independent cultural centres and small artist-run exhibition spaces that feature emerging artistic talent. Londons rich annual cultural calendar includes an array of prominent events, such as London Fashion Week, Frieze Art Fair, LIFT theatre festival, London Festival of Architecture and London Design Festival, to name but a few.

    As a major transport hub, with its five airports, sixteen railway termini and high speed international connections, London is the perfect base from which to explore the rest of the UK and many of Europes finest cities and regions.

    All six UAL Colleges are at the heart of their local neighbourhoods, so you will be perfectly placed to enjoy these dynamic communities and all that London has to offer.
