Continuously occupied since the time of the Roman Empire, London has been one of the most exciting and bustling cities in the world for hundreds of years (as well as the world’s largest metropolis for a century from the 1800s into the early 20th Century). The capital of the United Kingdom and one of the seats of the British monarchy, London is a world financial, cultural, educational, and entertainment centre.
London’s metropolitan area, whose population tops 13 million residents, is centred on the City of London, the old medieval walled city which is now home to a tight concentration of global financial giants. In Westminster to the west are the iconic Houses of Parliament and offices of the UK’s national government, as well as Westminster Abbey, a medieval church of national importance. In between the City and Westminster is London’s ever-fashionable West End, with its shops, restaurants, galleries, theatres, and historic sites.
London also contains major tourist attractions such as the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Wembley Stadium, Hyde Park, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the reconstructed Globe Theatre. Major national cultural institutions such as the British Museum, National Gallery, Tate Modern and British Library are also located in London. The city is served by five airports, with the major hub of London Heathrow among the world’s busiest airports.
Beyond the famous landmarks and attractions, however, London is a diverse and varied metropolis with tremendous cultural richness. Immigrants to the city from across the former colonies of the British Empire and beyond have made London into a multicultural melting pot, with surprises and delights waiting seemingly around every corner.
