London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom, with a population of just under 9 million.

The City of London, its ancient core and financial centre, was founded by the Romans as Londinium and retains its medieval boundaries

The City of Westminster, to the west of the City of London, has for centuries hosted the national Government and Parliament.

As one of the world's major global cities, London exerts a strong influence on its arts, entertainment, fashion, commerce and finance, education, health care, media, science and technology, tourism, and transport and communications.

It is the largest urban economy in Europe and it is one of the major financial centres in the world. With Europe's largest concentration of higher education institutions, it is home to some of the highest-ranked academic institutions in the world (Imperial College London in Natural and Applied Sciences, the London School of Economics in Social Sciences, and the comprehensive University College London).

London is the most visited city in Europe and has the busiest city airport system in the world. The London Underground is the oldest rapid transit system in the world.

London's diverse cultures encompass over 300 languages. The London metropolitan area is the third-most populous in Europe with about 14 million inhabitants in 2016, granting London the status of a megacity.

London has four World Heritage Sites: the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, the combined Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey and St Margaret's Church, and the Royal Observatory, home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Other landmarks include Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge and Trafalgar Square.
London has many museums, galleries, libraries and cultural venues, including the British Museum, National Gallery, Natural History Museum, Tate Modern, British Library and numerous West End theatres.
Important sporting events held in London include the FA Cup Final (held annually at Wembley Stadium), Wimbledon Tennis Championships and the London Marathon. In 2012, London became the first city to host three Summer Olympic Games.
