Arts & culture

London is famous for its creativity, arts and culture. From concerts and exhibitions to pubs and food markets, there’s always something to enjoy. Our music, books, art, theatre shows and films are enjoyed all around the world and our capital is one of the most visited cities on the planet. Four out of five visitors say 'culture' is their main reason for coming to London.

In 2018, the Mayor set up the London Borough of Culture programme to improve access to culture. Waltham Forest was selected for 2019, in 2020 the honour goes to Brent, 2021 will put Lewisham in the spotlight and it's Croydon's turn in 2023.

After a consultation with Londoners and stakeholders, the London Culture Strategy was published in December 2018.
