London, the capital of the United Kingdom (England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland), has a recorded history that goes back over 2,000 years. During this time, it has grown to become one of the most significant financial and cultural capitals of the world. It has experienced plague, devastating fire, civil war, aerial bombardment and terrorist attacks.
See City of London for details on the historic core of London. London is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings consider printing them all. Noisy, vibrant and truly multicultural, London is a megalopolis of people, ideas and energy.
The capital and largest city of both the United Kingdom and of England, it is also the largest city in Western Europe and the European Union. Situated on the River Thames in South-East England, Greater London has an official population of nearly 8 million people although the figure of over 14 million for the city's total metropolitan area more accurately reflects London's size and importance.
London is one of the great "world cities," and remains a global capital of culture, fashion, finance, politics and trade.
