Search for cheap hotels near Brazilian Embassy
London's Latin American community is increasing steadily, with estimates placing the number of Brazilians living in London at 50,000. Brazilian communities are especially prevalent in the Bayswater district of London, which has earned the slightly awkward nickname 'Brazilwater' because of the many latinos living there. As a result, some of the most authentic Brazilian food in the city can be found there and the country's vibrant culture has been enthusiastically adopted by Londoners, with a proliferation of Tango and Salsa dance classes throughout the city and a rise in popularity of Capoeira, not to mention the many Brazilian football teams which have sprung up. Brazilians also have an annual festival called the Carnival de Pueblo, which is held annually in Burgess Park as a celebration of their culture, so it is unsurprising that the Brazilian Embassy is a fairly prominent institution in London.
Trade between Britain and Brazil is booming and it is also a very vacation spot for Londoners weary of the drizzling weather. The Embassy can provide information on how to procure a VISA, which is required by British nationals visiting the country (and peoples of other nationalities living in the UK. The Embassy also has a wealth of information about the country, so tourists will know what to expect when they arrive. The Embassy can also provide assistance to any Brazilian citizens in the UK, who may have lost their passport or need help with legal matters.
Beyond helping to facilitate and rescue people's holidays, the Embassy provides a vital link between the UK and Brazil, keeping an eye on military interests in the UK, human rights issues, the economic state of the country and foreign trade policy and reporting back to Brazilian officials. The Embassy also liaises with the British Government, NGOs and other official bodies to help with issues affecting the UK and Brazil, whether it's environmental, medical, social or financial concerns.
The Embassy has a strong focus on education, providing education packs for Brazilian school pupils and helping Brazilian citizens to study in the UK and vice versa, providing information on finance and the culture shock you may experience when moving your home across the Atlantic. Brazil is also a partner in the Global Fellowship Programme, which allows for research in the UK and is active in securing scholarships for outstanding Brazilian students.
With such a colourful culture to celebrate, the Embassy is very enthusiastic in promoting Brazilian culture, encompassing Gallery 32, a fascinating centre where Brazilian contemporary art is exhibited. The Embassy also has a lengthy archive regarding the history and identity of Brazil and advertises upcoming events relevant to Brazilian culture on their website, as well as notifying Londoners where they can find the best Brazilian food, products, dance schools and much more.
The Embassy is located in Mayfair, and whether you require their services or not, this is a fascinating and picturesque part of London to stay in during your visit. Hotels in the area do tend to be pricier than in other areas of London, but it is worth paying the extra for luxurious surroundings and major attractions just minutes from your door. The Millennium Hotel offers decadent rooms decorated in a traditional style, with plenty of old-world glamour. Ascott Mayfair Apartments offer superbly appointed units, which will make you feel like a member of the aristocracy.
