Neighbourhoods

It is said an English city is but a composition of eclectic villages, each distinct from the other. As a nation we delight in the diversity of our neighbourhoods. Creative types colonise one neighbourhood, tapping on laptops in trendy coffee shops, museums and galleries bustle with culture vultures in cultural quarters, and laid-back types hang out in the parks and surrounding pubs, while shopping addicts make the most of boutique and designer shops jostling for space in exclusive high streets across the country. Chinatowns brim with colour, the aromas of great restaurants and festivals, while sequinned dresses, steel drums and a heady mix of food stalls herald a West Indian and Caribbean street party.
