Explore Korea

Opened by the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in January 2008, the Korean Cultural Centre, on Northumberland Avenue just off Trafalgar Square, is effectively part of the Korean Embassy, and aims to 'enhance friendship, amity and understanding between Korea and the UK through cultural and educational activities'.

A while ago your author tried to investigate embassy visits in London, but with little success, so this is about as close as we will get. The Centre contains an art gallery, a cinema, seminar rooms, a library, a lecture hall, a small theatre and an IT and multimedia lounge, and hosts a wide range of activities, including Korean film nights, language courses, lectures, art exhibitions and concerts.

The next event on the agenda is an introduction to Korean cookery, which includes a master class with Chef Un Sook Yoon on how to cook popular Korean dish, Bul-Goggi (Sweetly marinated BBQ Beef).

So if you have an interest in any aspect of Korean culture, or if you're just interested to see what it's all about, why not take a look at the Korean Cultural Centre Website.
