Find out what excites Dev about central London and British culture, music and film.

As Dev says, the UK is truly an exciting mix of cultures and influences from all over the world. Where else would you find Indian curry houses rubbing shoulders with Michelin-starred restaurants, Jamaican Carnival one day, opera the next, and traditional cream teas served alongside cutting-edge cocktails?

And it’s not just Dev’s hometown, London, that pulses with creative cultural energy. All across the UK you’ll find festivals celebrating everything from chillies to chocolate and movies to medieval music. And did we mention the UK is home to Glastonbury, the world’s most famous rock festival as well as the Edinburgh Festival, the biggest arts celebration on the planet?

Much like the Brits themselves, UK culture is always diverse, often eccentric, frequently humorous and rarely boring!
