Why London?

As Europe’s largest city, London is so much more than Roman walls and medieval churches. It is a modern hub of activity where past and present ideas meet as one. No city in the world maintains a population as diverse. Influences from every corner of the globe give London its rightful name as the world’s capital.

So really a more appropriate question would be: why not London? :¬)

‘London in a word’

(NB. ‘AHA’ is our previous name, before we changed to ‘GEO’!)
