The City, mostly visible on the picture above, was heavily bombed during the war, thus the buildings are newer. Generally London is a much more modern city.

Great fire of London and the blitz itself on the scale it was is pretty more unprecedented in history. 80% of the city was destroyed in the first including nearly 90 of its 100 churches.
