My Trip to London

Travel December 7, 2012

London is a huge city with several district articles containing sightseeing, restaurant, nightlife and accommodation listings – consider printing them all.

Noisy, vibrant and truly multicultural, London is a megalopolis of people, ideas and energy. The capital and largest city of both the United Kingdom and of England, it is also the largest city in Western Europe and the European Union. Situated on the River Thames in South-East England, Greater London has an official population of nearly 8 million people – although the figure of over 14 million for the city’s total metropolitan area more accurately reflects London’s size and importance. London is one of the great “world cities,” and remains a global capital of culture, fashion, finance, politics and trade.

The name London originally referred only to the once-walled “Square Mile” of the original Roman (and later medieval) city (confusingly called the “City of London” or just “The City”). Today, London has taken on a much larger meaning to include all of the vast central parts of the modern metropolis, with the city having absorbed numerous surrounding towns and villages over the centuries. The term Greater London embraces Central London together with all the outlying suburbs that lie in one continuous urban sprawl within the lower Thames valley. Though densely populated by New World standards, London retains large swathes of green parkland and open space, even within the city centre.

Greater-London consists of 32 London boroughs and the City of London that, together with the office of the Mayor of London, form the basis for London’s local government. The Mayor of London is elected by London residents and should not be confused with the Lord Mayor of the City of London. The names of several boroughs, such as Westminster or Camden, are well-known, others less so, such as Wandsworth or Lewisham.

London will host the 2012 Summer Olympics.

  • New House Purchase

    I just spent 10 million on a new mega mansion located in Isleworth, FL. It’s a great place so far except for the fact that Tiger Woods is my neighbor. Ugh. Talk about no privacy with all the paparazzi invading us on a daily basis. I think I’m going to sell and just buy a […]

  • Decked out Ferrari F430 Giveaway

    by on December 7, 2012 - 2 Comments

    I bought this Ferrari from my friend Larry Ellison last week and it’s just too darn fast for me. I really don’t like the fact that the red color and style….it just attracts way too many women. So I’ve decided to give it away to the 10,000th customer who buys ClassiPress. Nunc scelerisque sodales molestie. […]
