Other big Lithuanian communities in Engalnd can be found in Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Bradford;
Although most of Lithuanians immigrated to England after Lithuania’s accession to the EU, the history of Lithuanian community in London dates back to 19th century;
Headley Park Hotel, a Lithuanian zone in the old St. Patrick Roman Catholic cemetery and St. Casmir Roman Catholic church are reminders of a remarkable Lithuanian community life that thrived in London in the 20th century;
Modern Lithuanian imigration to England has successfully renewed the community, continuing old traditions and founding numerous new organizations and institutions;
