ROYAL FREE LONDON
NHS FOUNDATION TRUST

The Royal Free Hospital was founded in 1828. The main aim of this foundation was to provide healthcare to people who could not afford medical treatment. In 1837, Queen Victoria granted the hospital with the title "Royal" after recognising the hospital's work with cholera patients. It was the only hospital to stay open during the 19th-century cholera epidemic.

 

For several years, the Royal Free Hospital was the only hospital in London to provide medical education to women, which led to a close association with the London School of Medicine for Women, that was later renamed as the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine.

Why London?

London is one of the world’s most visited cities, the city has something for everyone. From history and culture to great food and exceedingly good times. London has about 2000 years of history and is deeply cosmopolitan and exotic. It is a fact that one-third of Londoners were born overseas. With such diversity, London’s cultural dynamism makes it among the world’s most international cities.

Transportation Hub 

London's public transport is considered as one of the best system in the world. Although the city has great roads and connectivity, London is the most walkable city on the planet. Trust us, there’s nothing better than a walk along the Thames.

The main source of public transport in London revolves around the Underground or the Tube as it is called by Londoners. This extensive network of 12 lines can get you to most places in the centre of the city quickly

The people outside the UK believe that the capital's transport system is one of the safest and most efficient public transport networks in the world. The Underground and the ever-cheerful London cabbie come in for particularly high praise.

Food & Drinks

London's food doesn't come any more traditional - or tasty - than good old pie and mash. The Londoners particularly love to have tea a lot. 

 Fish and chips are a delicious, fried dish that consists of batter-coated, fried fish and chips. This delightful yet straightforward meal originated in England and has become one of the most famous London foods. It is best served hot and is eaten as a main course – but you can find it as a take-away snack from food stalls around London.

The English Breakfast is one of the best London foods, and many cafes and pubs serve it at any time of the day.

The city has numerous eateries, restaurants and pubs that you find in every corner serving multiple cuisines from Mexican tortillas, Italian pastas, Indian kebabs, Chinese dishes to tasty Japanese sushi. Almost every street in the city has cafes and pubs that exuberates anyone and everyone.

Acceptance

London welcomes everyone and represents the cosmopolitan world, you will definitely find it as an extremely amazing place to live and add value to your lifestyle. Amazingly, the ‘Big Smoke’ is home to more than 270 nationalities and 300 languages.

The society of London is a multicultural society and the people are welcoming of every culture and creed.

The level of politeness among British people may surprise you at first as it’s certainly more prevalent than in some other countries. Don’t worry though because it’s easy to get used to; just say ‘thank you’ when someone has given you something or moved out of the way for you, ‘please’ when asking for something and ‘sorry’ should you bump into someone or inconvenience them slightly.
