Join us in London from June 8 to June 17, 2020!
The cosmopolitan city of London is the capital and most populous city of England in the United Kingdom. It is the premier city in Europe in terms of size, population and per-capita wealth. What strikes visitors more than anything about London is the sheer size of this city, spreading across a huge area from its core on the River Thames, which meanders through the city centre, dividing it into northern and southern halves.
London is the leading global city in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, tourism etc. and is often referred to as a world cultural capital. Those without local roots will find this gigantic metropolis surprisingly diverse, and besides English, around 200 different languages are spoken within its confines. At times, London can seem more like a country than a city.
In 2012, London became the first city to have hosted the modern Summer Olympic Games three times. London's most popular sport is football (soccer) and it has 12 Football League clubs including five in the Premier League: Arsenal, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur, and West Ham United.
The climate of London is temperate with modest daily high temperatures during summer, and winter lows that seldom fall below freezing. Rainfall is fairly regular, occurring throughout the year. Snow occurs sometimes in winter but rarely settles more than a few inches.
INTERNATIONAL WORK EXPERIENCE
ROYAL WINDSOR TRIATHLON
Awarded the BTF’s ‘Event of the Year’ a remarkable seven times, the Royal Windsor Triathlon is one of the best Olympic distance triathlons in the UK - and is 27 years and counting! The triathlon celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2015, and has stood the test of time with its quality delivery, stunning location and great event village.
For the first time in 2017, the triathlon was referred to as the Royal Windsor Triathlon, which coincided with a stunning new run course taking place on royal grounds of the iconic Windsor Castle!
HOME TO ARSENAL FC SOCCER TEAM
Emirates Stadium built in 2006 was described as "beautiful and intimidating" by architect Christopher Lee. It is a four-tiered bowl with translucent roofing over the stands, seating approximately 60,000 spectators for a Arsenal game. It is the first stadium in the world to incorporate HDTV streaming.
Aside from sporting uses, Emirate Stadium operates as a conference center and a music venue. Capacity increases to 72,000 for concerts. Bruce Springsteen played the first concert ever in Emirates Stadium in 2008.
Queen Elizabeth OLYMPIC PARK
MAIN SITE FOR 2012 LONDON OLYMPIC GAMES
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London is a sporting complex built for the 2012 Summer Olympic and Summer Paralympic Games and is situated to the east of the city. It contains the athletes' Olympic Village and several of the sporting venue including the London Stadium and London Aquatics Centre.
The park is overlooked by the ArcelorMittal Orbit, an observation tower and Britain's largest piece of public art. It was simply called Olympic Park during the Games but was later renamed to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II.
