Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?

Because London has such a large multicultural population, you will probably meet many people of different backgrounds. There are a variety of fee-paying clubs, which offer great sporting facilities and events to participate in. Joining a gym or attending fitness or dance classes is also a great way to meet people. Joining social media sites like Facebook is also recommended, as these are great for joining up to groups and receiving regular updates and invites to things that you are interested in.
