Carl Goes London
Welcome to Carl Goes London, a book that brings the local voices of Londoners to our curious and creative travellers. Carl Goes London is a lifestyle accompaniment. Many of our fans read our books from cover to cover before they travel to a destination, as an immersive experience before they even arrive.
The feeling in London at the moment is one of courageous creativity. Long known as a corporate and costly global centre, London’s ecosystem is increasingly supportive of smaller scale ventures and tech start-up innovation. Thanks to enterprising government initiatives, East London Tech City is thriving and there are more than 5,000 active start-ups working across London. Although the expense of London can be frustrating for locals at times, London’s wealth is positive in the business scene, as start-ups have access to rich consumers, influential businesses, a strong funding landscape and an established city system — London has the largest city ecosystem in Europe, after all.
