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.
The name London originally referred only to the once-walled “Square Mile” of the original Roman (and later medieval) city (confusingly called the “City of London” or just “The City”). Today, London has taken on a much larger meaning to include all of the vast central parts of the modern metropolis, with the city having absorbed numerous surrounding towns and villages over the centuries. The term Greater London embraces Central London together with all the outlying suburbs that lie in one continuous urban sprawl within the lower Thames valley. Though densely populated by New World standards, London retains large swathes of green parkland and open space, even within the city centre.
Greater-London consists of 32 London boroughs and the City of London that, together with the office of the Mayor of London, form the basis for London’s local government. The Mayor of London is elected by London residents and should not be confused with the Lord Mayor of the City of London. The names of several boroughs, such as Westminster or Camden, are well-known, others less so, such as Wandsworth or Lewisham.
1 -London Bridge is the favorite for those that are seeking a quiet spot to enjoy their lunch, exploring the water and meeting with joyful visitors.
2 -The absolute stand-out date location in London has to be Wilton’s Music Hall, near Shadwell. It’s one of the last surviving music halls of nineteenth-century London and manages to blend the moods of a WWII French Resistance hideout, a Prohibition-era speakeasy and a cheap student hangout.
3-London is loyal to its alternative entertainment, and and people has fallen in love with the burlesque scene.
