Overview:

The cosmopolitan city of London is the capital and largest city of England, a division of the United Kingdom. It is the foremost city in the European Union in terms of population, area, and per-capita wealth. A number of features such as politics, entertainment, tourism, education, culture, media, arts, and fashion contribute to its position as one of the most important international cities. The name “London” normally refers to the region called Greater London, which is coextensive with the London region of England. Situated at the center of the urban sprawl is the small, ancient City of London, which was the integrality of the city in olden times. The residents of London simply use "the City" or the "Square Mile" to refer to the City of London. This beautiful city is an important settlement for nearly 2 millennia. The metropolitan area of the city developed significantly during the Victorian era. Again, the area grew considerably during the Interwar period with growth halted in the 1940s by Green Belt legislation and World War II. Today, London is one of the major business and financial hubs in the world. The city spreads across a vast area from its core on the River Thames. Perhaps, its sheer size attracts visitors more than anything about London.

Geography and Climate in London

Greater London is spread over an area of about 1,600 sq km, making it one of the largest cities in the world by area. Thames River is its major geographical feature. This navigable river divides the city into northern and southern parts. Thames Valley, a floodplain, is bounded by gently rolling hills, including the Primrose Hill and the Parliament Hill. London has a moderate climate with regular, but usually light precipitation throughout the year. January is the coolest month, with an average temperature range of 2.4 °C to 7.9 °C. July is the warmest month, averaging 13.6 °C to 22.8 °C. Average precipitation per year is 22.98 inch (583.6 mm), with February on average the driest month. Snow is rare since heat from the town area can make London 5 °C (9 °F) hotter than the adjacent areas in winter. London has several open spaces located throughout the city. Of these, popular are the Royal Parks, Kensington Gardens, Holland Park Gardens, Regent's Park, Royal Parks, and St. James's Park.

History:

The recorded history of London dates back to nearly 2,000 years. During this period, the city has experienced annihilating fire, civil war, aerial bombardment, plague, and terrorist attacks. The long history of city can be divided into different eras, such as Roman, Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, Tudor Era, Stuart, Georgian Period, Victorian London, and 20th century London. The Romans reached the region around 43AD. Prior to them, the region has no significant permanent settlement. The Temple of Mithras, built in the 2nd century, is one of the best Roman remains in London. After the fall of the Roman Kingdom (around 5th century), Anglo-Saxons people occupied the area. Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral are believed to have been built during this period. Medieval period tells the history of city from the Norman attack to the Tudor age. During this period, London developed into two different areas. The City of London became the major place for trade, while the up-river town of Westminster became the Royal capital and centre of government. The Guildhall, Inns of Court, St. Bartholomew-the-Great, and Temple Church were built during this time. Tudor history of London includes the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. The Stuart era explains the history of James I through the Civil War and Restoration to the ascension of George I. The Georgian Period was the time of architectural splendor and pleasure gardens. The city’s metropolitan area grew very much during the Victorian London. This era was the time of Dickens, Sherlock Holmes, and Jack-the-Ripper (which was a foul). The Victoria Embankment, Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and Houses of Parliament were built during this era. The terrific population boost of the late Victorian era continued into the 20th century. The notable features of this era include the motor bus service, underground electric train, London Transport Museum, Dockland, Millennium Dome, South Banks Arts Centre, and Thames Barrier.

The city is also home to large Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Sikh communities. Muslims inhabit the boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Newham. The London Central Mosque situated on the edge of Regent's Park is the most important Muslim structure. Many Hindus live in the north-western boroughs of Harrow and Brent, which is where Neasden Temple (one of Europe's largest Hindu temples) is located. Sikh communities live in East and West London. The majority of British Jews occupy the Central London.

The western end of the city is the stylish and tourist-ridden area, which lies within the western portion of the loop and includes Soho, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, and Regent Street. Of major landmarks are Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, and the London Eye. London museums and galleries include the Natural History Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, and British Museum.
