•   London is the largest urban area and capital of
    England and the United Kingdom. An important
    settlement for two millennia, London's history
    goes back to its founding by the Romans. 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.
•   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.
    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.
