  • Hi I'm Joel and I'm Lia and I'm Tom and this video is all about different

  • communities in London

  • so we get a lot of comments from you lot asking about what are

  • the different communities in London lots of you are looking to move to London and

  • while it's important to integrate into the culture here in the UK I think it's

  • also really important to have a community that you belong to because

  • London can be a really lonely place to live

  • so London is like a super

  • multicultural City so there are so many communities right around in London

  • ok who wants to talk about the first community in London?

  • okay I want to go with the first one because I find this one the most

  • fascinating okay and that's the Korean community

  • ah amazing

  • I only just

  • really explored or found out about the Korean community and it's based in a

  • little kind of area just almost on the outskirts of South West London in New

  • Malden and it's like little Korea and it's like allegedly it's 20,000 Koreans that

  • live there and it's this whole community where there's

  • Korean signage shops it's just it's amazing yeah

  • that's so awesome yeah I used live

  • in Raynes Park which is just one stop away from New Malden so I walk

  • there occasionally um it's just full of Koreans

  • so is there a Korean supermarket yeah that's

  • so good yeah so I led you the reason

  • I researched the reason that you know the

  • original Korean embassy was based in New Malden which is why a lot of people kind of went

  • there in the seventies and eighties

  • yeah because it is an odd place - yeah yes

  • it's a really random place why would you ever go to New Malden?

  • and most embassies are usually in very flashy areas and New Malden is just not flashy

  • but I think it's moved now into central London

  • and then allegedly the the Samsung headquarters of Europe yeah was

  • originally based there as well so I mean two great reasons if you're Korean

  • 00:01:51,570 --> 00:01:53,920 I really wanna go there

  • allegedly there's an amazing that Korean fried chicken and

  • beer place so

  • fried chicken and beer?

  • I mean if you're not busy

  • is that Korean? it sounds American

  • it's like Korean fried chicken and Korean beer

  • oh yeah

  • is there an American community in London?

  • because I worked with students from NYU but I didn't know if

  • I was just sort of

  • in this spot where I was like oh

  • there's loads of Americans here whether there's

  • actually a hub for Americans in London I don't think there is

  • and I think that's because

  • they speak English you find it easier to integrate with British people whereas I

  • think one of the big reasons for people sticking with communities from the

  • country that they're from is the language that's a huge part of why

  • yeah there

  • was an American School in St John's Wood so I think whether you've got like

  • schools and institution that people kind of congregate and I know that there's like an

  • American football teams based around there as well so maybe there was or is

  • and same with churches like there seems to be lots of Greek Orthodox churches up in

  • North London and that's where a lot of my family live that a Greek it tends to

  • be where there's already stuff to do with that culture or that language or

  • community but I actually went to a meetup for Greeks it was called London

  • Greek artists okay and I actually really didn't have a great time unfortunately I

  • was the only sort of English born Greek there and I felt not Greek enough to be

  • there I guess that's also the generational thing like if you are a few

  • generations in

  • yeah

  • you're the second or third generation you feel like a local

  • Londoner you don't feel so Greek

  • so it's, how does your identity form within you?

  • like it you do you feel Greek or do you feel London?

  • it's really hard because like

  • with my Greek family they would be like no she's English

  • but like with my English friends I like to think oh I'm the Greek one

  • but i'm so not

  • so it's really hard

  • identity problem

  • around where I live yeah there's

  • a lot of like Greek Cypriot businesses so the hairdresser I go is such a great

  • barber I love going in there and hearing like London Greek Radio

  • all that kind of stuff

  • the fish-and-chip shop is owned by Greek people

  • yeah but they

  • tend to be from like my camden up

  • yeah you'll find Greeks

  • yeah will will find them

  • you can't get rid of them

  • i'm with one

  • where I used to live in Clerkenwell was a huge Italian community I think it used to be

  • a lot more Italian back in the day yeah it used to be known as like Little Italy

  • but whenever I'd walk through Clerkenwell there's like a massive Italian

  • church there called St Peters and next to it that's like a Italian delicatessen

  • and like whatever the Italian version is

  • shops and everything and it's just

  • really lovely

  • I remember on I want to say Sunday because it was the church finishing

  • but it might not have been Sunday but anyway um all the Italians sort of

  • being pushed out onto the street as they're leaving church and like it just

  • looked like a really lovely community of everyone just chatting Italian and like

  • going to the shop and the cafe afterwards

  • that's just it's just really nice if you

  • did you really wanna be Italian yeah I did and

  • I'm not sure what my heritage is it

  • it could actually be Italian my family just aren't sure because my family from like

  • Romany gypsies which means we could be from anywhere

  • Going on from that institution so

  • there's le lissage francais which is a school in Kensington mmm yeah I've

  • heard that there is a big French committee that's kind of built up

  • around that school because a lot of the people that are from France want

  • their kids to go there and to speak French every day but also kind of live

  • within a bilingual sorry grow up in a bilingual way and amazingly so

  • there is an MP well so yeah an elected representative of the French parliament

  • in London so all the French people that have moved abroad they get to vote for a

  • representative to represent them in the French parliament or whatever and

  • there's one based in London so anyone like a French person who lives in Paris

  • yeah sorry a French person that lives in London can vote for a representative

  • amazing that's a really cool perk of having

  • your community yeah

  • so you can live in London you can but you can vote yeah

  • have your own little French MP

  • a Frempy

  • a frempy - a French MP

  • one of my favourite things in London is the way you

  • could kind of you can get on the bus and you can go through loads of different

  • communities so and there's a bus called the 253

  • and you can get on at

  • Euston and it goes to packing centering it goes through some amazing communities

  • I can go through Camden in this but it's like hipsters and what sort of rockers

  • and stuff and then you go through Holloway and then it goes on and then

  • you get to Stamford Hill and Stanford Hill is the most amazing place

  • with a

  • hasidic Jewish community yeah where everyone is traditionally dressed it just

  • feels like a totally different world yes I went up there for a job and I had to

  • sort of like do a double-take and it's really stark like you you're going down

  • one road and then suddenly you turn and you're like wow I'm in a totally different

  • London this is yeah you know it's kind of like the traditional word of ghetto

  • meaning like a separated community right

  • yeah it's really only people from that

  • community yeah it's amazing and it's amazing that until this point still it's

  • really strong since things get diluted so early and like people often get priced

  • out of areas and you hear of them not being able to sort of stay near what

  • they want to be near yeah but there's also a really huge sort of Caribbean

  • influence going on in Brixton

  • you know when you get out at Brixton and you've got so

  • much sort of like Jamaican Caribbean yeah vibes even just like the music

  • that's playing when you come out of the station it's electric it's so cool

  • yeah like we we're saying pockets of London

  • with these communities really exciting

  • and definitely worth exploring when you're here yeah with that Caribbean

  • culture is it's the one I think about most when I think about like a

  • multicultural London I think about like yeah Brixton and that kind of area of

  • multicultural sort of Caribbean and then also at Notting Hill

  • I mean the Notting HIll carnival yeah there isn't a bigger representation of like

  • multicultural London yeah it's amazing yeah if you guys

  • do you ever go ?

  • yes sometimes it can be

  • like chaos it can also be really fun yeah yeah yeah it's not my sort of thing

  • crowds but I

  • like watching like videos and on telly I like watching the recap of it oh that

  • looks nice again Notting Hill that was a very traditional Caribbean community

  • that has development we see now it's changed it's become very people even priced out

  • so yeah

  • I think these communities are being pushed

  • further and further out because I know that I watched a documentary about

  • cockneys who are like people that are born in London who usually were in East

  • London but now they're being priced out and pushed futher out so now you don't

  • really find that many cockneys in London they've sort of moved over to Essex and

  • they sort of reside over there now and then that's changing their accent and their

  • identity and then so they're just sort of fading out so it is sad about gentrification

  • but yeah but then

  • it's kind of just evolving things so like let's say Brick Lane for example

  • which is now a largely Bangladeshi area with also hipsters as well yeah

  • but that was traditionally a Jewish area so a lot of the Jewish early settlers then

  • left there and went off to Stanford Hill and Golders Green and then the Bangladeshi

  • community moved in so yeah these areas just evolve no one really owns that area it's just like

  • on Brick Lane you've also got

  • got signs written in Bengali so it's like you've got little Bangla town

  • on Brick Lane and loads and loads and loads of restaurants which is like it is

  • literally like five steps later and you're in a different place yeah it's mental

  • amazing it's amazing photo if you took capture like Brick Lane and then the

  • translation in Bengali

  • yeah that's what I think is really nice though Brick Lane is that

  • you've got all those cultures in one place whereas I'm not a fan necessarily

  • of communities that are purely one section of society even if it's just

  • cockney or whatever it is I like when people sort of integrate the cultures

  • all together I think there's a lot of yeah a lot of integration

  • yeah it's one of the great things is yeah do have that fluid movement of people

  • yeah in fact if you're

  • into sort of food who isn't

  • there's an amazing market on a Saturday and

  • Sunday and it's on Brick Lane and it's got everything's got like Malaysian food

  • and and like just every sort of like Caribbean food every sort of genre of

  • food all under one sort of Street Market it's really nice try the Malaysian

  • pancakes I've not been to Malaysia but I know what they taste like

  • and on that note guys I think we'll leave it there because you've already

  • got so much on London communities this is gonna be in part one we think yeah

  • yeah, there could a part two I suspect yea if you're up for it?

  • definitely I love talking about London

  • excellent

  • and don't forget to let us know down in the comments what community you're from

  • and if you've experienced that coming to London we'd love to hear your thoughts

  • we also found a video over on Tom's channel that's right yeah we looked at

  • London accents right so the different variations and these guys are amazing

  • accents as you know so so yeah check that out guys if you're not already

  • subscribed make sure you do that and we'll see you next time!

  • Bye
