From wikipedia:

London is the capital and largest urban area of both England and the United Kingdom. An important settlement for two millennia, London’s history goes back to its founding by the Romans. The city’s core, the ancient City of London, still retains its limited medieval boundaries; but since at least the 19th century, the name “London” has also referred to the whole metropolis that has developed around it. Today the bulk of this conurbation forms the London region of England and the Greater London administrative area, with its own elected mayor and assembly. Since its foundation, London has been part of many movements and phenomena throughout history, including the English Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution, and the Gothic Revival.
