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.

The Culture of London concerns the arts, music, museums, festivals and other entertainment in London, the capital city of the United Kingdom. The city is particularly renowned for its theater quarter, and its West End theater district has given the name to "West End theatre", the strand of mainstream professional theater staged in the large theatres in London.
 London is also home to notable cultural attractions such as the British Museum, the Tate Galleries, the National Gallery, the Notting Hill Carnival and The O2. A variety of landmarks and objects are cultural icons associated with London, such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the tube map.
