London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom. The ancient City of London (called Londinium, by the Romans), to which the name originally belonged, still retains its mediaeval boundaries, but the name 'London' has long been applied more generally to the whole metropolis which has grown up around it. Londinium built on the north bank of the River Thames in around 50 AD. By the 18th century London was the biggest city in the world. It was the most populous city in the world from 1825 until 1925.
An important settlement for around two millennia, London is today one of the world's leading business, financial and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the major global cities. It is the largest city in the EU with a population of over 7 million. It will also host the Olympics in 2012.
