History of London

London

London has a history dating back over 2,000 years. During this time, it has grown to become one of the most significant financial and cultural capitals in the world. It has experienced plague, devastating fire, civil war, aerial bombardment, terrorist attacks, and widespread rioting. The City of London is its historic core and today is its primary financial district, though it now represents a tiny part of the wider metropolis of Greater London.
