King's College in London



King's College in London is surrounded by one of the most important capitals in the world. London is a city with a rich history, dating back to its foundation by the Romans. During more than 2,000 years this metropolis has stood the test of plague, devastating fire, civil war, aerial bombardment and terrorist attacks; a spirit of survival that is most notably symbolized by its endurance of the German Blitz during World War II. Moreover, it is a force to reckon with in the fields of arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, health care, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport; many of which can be studied at King's College.

Some of the technological breakthroughs that occurred and can still be appreciated in this city include the London Underground, the oldest rapid transit system in the world; and Heathrow Airport, the world's busiest airport in terms of international traffic. Science is also a major field in England's capital. In fact, it was near the Greater London area that the first oral treatment for erectile dysfunction was developed, thanks to which many others came, enabling people to buy Cialis and the like.

As for the arts, they are represented in the West End theater district, the British equivalent of Broadway. Needless to say that London's stage tradition can be traced all the way back to the bard himself, William Shakespeare. Music has its place as well, in venues like the Royal Albert Hall, the Brixton Academy, the Barbican Centre, and Cadigan Hall. Finally, when it comes to education, King's College is in good company, being joined by Imperial College London, University College London, The London School of Economics, The London Business School, the University of London, Queen Mary University of London, Royal Holloway, Birkbeck, among many, many more.
