Three Days in London

London (pronunciation ; IPA: /ˈlʌndən/) is the largest urban area and capital of England and the United Kingdom.[7] An important settlement for two millennia, London's history goes back to its founding by the Romans.[8] Since its settlement, London has been part of many important movements and phenomena throughout history, such as the English Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution, and the Gothic Revival.[9][10] The city's core, the ancient City of London, still retains its limited mediaeval boundaries; but since at least the 19th century the name "London" has also referred to the whole metropolis which has developed around it.[11] Today the bulk of this conurbation forms the London region of England[12] and the Greater London administrative area,[13] with its own elected mayor and assembly.[14]
