LONDON: A World Capital

* A resurrection of the original "LONDON: A WORLD CAPITAL" thread, which was rightly taken-down due to uncredited photos.

* Max 3 photos per post





London
United Kingdom

Population: 8,308,369

London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom, and the largest city, urban zone and metropolitan area in the United Kingdom.
Located on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who named it Londinium.

London is a leading global city, with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence. It is one of the world's leading financial centres and has the fifth- or sixth-largest metropolitan area GDP in the world depending on measurement. London has been described as a world cultural capital.
It is the world's most-visited city as measured by international arrivals and has the world's largest city airport system measured by passenger traffic.
London's 43 universities form the largest concentration of higher education in Europe. In 2012, London became the first city to host the modern Summer Olympic Games three times.
