This passport map showing London’s diversity is amazing

19512-1r5pq4i.jpg

If you’ve ever tried to choose somewhere to go for dinner in London then you’ll be all too familiar with how diverse the city is.

Yanko Tihov, an artist from Sofia who lives in London, has created this map made up of passports to celebrate how multicultural the capital is and demonstrate the most common non-British nationalities in each London borough. 

When he moved from Notting Hill to Muswell Hill he was influenced by the fact that a move from one area to another was almost like immigrating to another country.

 

"London is the only place where such a map could be really possible," he said, "Except possibly New York."

 

Basically you need to head to Hackney for kebabs, the City for burgers and Bromley for curry.

Where to go for which cuisine just got a whole lot easier - check out the annotated map below.
