LondonLondon — containing the City of London — is the capital of the United Kingdom and of England and is recognised as one of the key "world cities".

With over seven million inhabitants (Londoners) in Greater London, it is the second-most populous conurbation in Europe, after Moscow.

Founded as Londinium, the capital of the Roman province of Britannia, it later rose to become the centre of the British Empire.

Today it generates over 17% of the GDP of the UK's economy, the world's fourth largest, and is a major financial centre along with New York and Tokyo.

For several centuries, London has been one of the most influential powers in politics, finance, arts and fashion and remains so today.
