The place[edit | edit source]

London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom. Greater London's population of almost 9,000,000 people makes it, by a considerable margin, the largest city in both England and the United Kingdom, and, in terms of its municipal area, it is also the largest city in Europe.

London is recognised as being of significant importance in the areas of world politics, finance and culture and has always contained extremes of wealth and poverty. Despite the latter it has been viewed by some as being a city of almost mythic opportunity with its streets being proverbially "paved with gold".
