United Kingdom capital and largest city

London is the capital and largest city of England and the United Kingdom. It stands on the River Thames in south-east England at the head of a 50-mile (80 km) estuary down to the North Sea. It has been a major settlement for two millennia. The City of London, its ancient core and financial centre, was founded by the Romans as Londinium and retains boundaries close to its medieval limits. Since the late 19th century, "London" has also referred to the metropolis around this, historically split between the counties of Middlesex, Essex, Surrey, Kent and Hertfordshire, which today largely comprises Greater London, the region governed by the Greater London Authority. The City of Westminster, to the west of the City, has for centuries held the national government and parliament.
