About Philadelphia

Philadelphia is the fifth largest city in the United States. Some of the largest employers include the Federal Government, City of Philadelphia, Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania, School District of Philadelphia and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Cheques and credit cards are the most popular payment methods in the United States. Credit cards are used for transactions of even a few dollars. It will be much easier to have a bank account if your British bank (such as HSBC or Barclays) has a presence in the United States. This should also mean that your banking history and credit history will remain unbroken.

Things To Do

One of the most popular places to visit is The Barnes Foundation which houses the world’s largest collection of African sculpture, early Modern, Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. The gallery can be found on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Another popular attraction is The Please Touch Museum, located on the Avenue of the Republic, which aims to create learning opportunities through play.
