Relocation in London means moving to one of the world’s cultural leaders. Any city that has played host to cultural luminaries as varied as William Shakespeare, J.M.W. Turner and Alfred Turner is going to have a fine and varied culture as a norm and London doesn’t disappoint in this regard and is certainly worth the international relocation! London has a long tradition of being home to art such as sculpture and painting. If you have the time and you’re in the mood, why not use the time to explore the galleries dotted around London and all that they have to offer. An obvious first stop for those wishing to explore London’s art offerings is the Tate Modern. The Tate, which is situated in a former power station in Central London, holds the honor of being the most visited modern art gallery in the world. Don’t forget to visit the Turbine Hall, a space which is five stories tall and, the art withstanding, is a space that might be referred to by Londoners as being ‘absolutely gob smacking!’

Relocation in London – The Finer Things

Another gallery for you to take your feet through is the enormous National Gallery on Trafalgar Square. Entry is free so being ‘skint’ (London speak for broke or low on cash) is no excuse not to visit it. Besides being absolutely gratis, the National also has amongst its collection works from classic names like Da Vinci and Rembrandt. Also on your relocation in London list you need to add The Somerset House Galleries to your list of must-visits as they have a fine collection of classic art on display as well as having something else to offer you. In the summer, the courtyard regularly features performances from bands (some major ones on occasion) as well as performance of classical music. Added to that, roundabout Christmas, the gallery’s courtyard is converted into an ice-rink, so you’ll have the option of skating around the rink and then relaxing afterwards with a stroll around the exhibits, which sounds like a very ideal way of spending a chilly December’s day. There’s a lot for you to do when you’ve completed your Relocation UK phase and once you’re properly settled, you’ll be free to take advantage of all that the city has to offer you.
