Regarded worldwide for the Richard Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario, London is something of a posh place to live. Nicknamed Forest City, a reflection of the many parks the city has to offer, the must-see spot here is Victoria Park. The greenspace is the grounds for a wide variety of festivals during the summer. In the winter, the Christmas light display is spectacular.
