    London was the world's largest city from c. 1831 to 1925, with a population density of 325 people per hectare. London's overcrowded conditions led to cholera epidemics, claiming 14,000 lives in 1848, and 6,000 in 1866. Rising traffic congestion led to the creation of the world's first local urban rail network.

    London has a temperate climate with regular, light rain throughout the year. July is the warmest month, with an average temperature at Greenwich of 13.6 ° C to 22.8 ° C. The coldest month is January, with an average of 2.4 ° C to 7.9 ° C. The average annual rainfall is 583.6 mm, and February is normally the driest month. Snow is uncommon in London itself, although there is regular snow in the surrounding area; this is because the extra heat the big city generates makes the city about 5 ° C warmer than surrounding areas in winter.

    The Romans built the city of Londinium along the River Thames in the year AD 43. The name Londinium (and later 'London') came from the Celtic language of the Ancient Britons. In the year AD 61, the city was attacked and destroyed. Then the Romans rebuilt the city, and London became an important trading hub. After the decline of the Roman Empire, few people remained in London. This was partly because the Anglo-Saxon people of Sub-Roman Britain were primarily agricultural. Once the Romans had gone, trade with Continental Europe dwindled. In the 9th century, more people started living in London again. It became the largest city in England. However, it did not become the capital city of England until the 12th century. After the railways were built, London grew very big. Greater London has 33 boroughs (neighbourhoods) and a mayor. The old City of Londonis only a square mile in size but has its own Lord Mayor. Another famous old part of Greater London is Westminster, which was always a di...

Their main stations are in London, and the lines go to every part of Great Britain. There were originally five major companies but the five companies became a national rail network in modern times. There are five airports, though only one is actually in London (London City Airport). There is the London end of the London–Birmingham canal, which was important to the industrial 19th century. The most used airport is Heathrow International Airport although it is actually outside the city. The metro or London Underground is a system of electric trains which are in London. It is the oldest underground railway in the world. It started running in 1863 as the Metropolitan Railway.

    En esta ciudad hay una gran variedad cultural, y se pueden hallar muchas personas de habla hispana y portuguesa. London está claramente dividido en 5 partes. El Este y el Sur son las zonas residenciales de la clase baja, o medio-baja, mientras que en el Norte y el Oeste nos podemos encontrar con grandes urbanizaciones con edificios lujosos. El centro es el centro neurálgico de la ciudad, en donde se encuentran los principales negocios de la ciudad, como la compañía telefónica estatal, llamada Bell. Las calles más importantes que dividen el centro son Dundas street y Richmond street. Destaca que, si su nombre hace obvia referencia a la capital de Reino Unido, a la vez un gran número de calles, edificios y parques tienen igual denominación que en el viejo Londres. Claros ejemplos son el río, cuyo nombre es Thames River, al igual que el Támesis inglés, y Covent Garden, pues se bautizó así al mercado céntrico de la ciudad canadiense.

    Esta ciudad, pese a tener una población relativamente pequeña, abarca un amplio territorio puesto que la densidad de la población es baja. Esto se debe a que la mayor parte de las viviendas son casas unifamiliares, bungallows o chalés, con unas parcelas de terreno alrededor de ellas. Según el censo de 2006, la propia ciudad de London tenía una población de 352.395 personas, el 48,2% hombres y 51,8% mujeres. Los niños menores de cinco años representaron aproximadamente el 5,2% de la población residente en London. 13,7% de la población residente en London estaban en edad de jubilación (65 años), que también es el porcentaje para Canadá en su conjunto. La edad media es de 38,2 años de edad, frente a 39,5 años de edad para todos los de Canadá.

    En esta urbe de tamaño medio se halla una importante universidad, llamada University of Western Ontario, cuyos principales estudios son humanísticos y artísticos.

También cuenta con casi 40.000 estudiantes a tiempo parcial en cursos de educación continua.

    La economía de Londres está dominada por la investigación médica, seguros, manufactura y tecnología de la información. La mayor parte de las ciencias de la vida y de la investigación se lleva a cabo o apoyado por la Universidad de Ontario Occidental, que añade 1500 millones de dólares a la economía de la ciudad cada año.

    El Budweiser Gardens (antiguo John Labatt Centre) es un escenario para eventos deportivos y variados espectáculos. Este recinto es sede de los equipos locales de hockey sobre hielo de la Ontario Hockey League (London Knights) y de la National Basketball League (London Lightning).

    Greater London is a ceremonial county of England that makes up the majority of the London region. This region forms the administrative boundaries of London and is organised into 33 local government districts—the 32 London boroughs and the City of London, which is located within the region but is separate from the county. The Greater London Authority, based in Southwark, is responsible for strategic local government across the region and consists of the Mayor of London and the London...

    The term Greater London has been and still is used to describe different areas in governance, statistics, history and common parlance. In terms of ceremonial counties, London is divided into the small City of London and the much wider Greater London. This arrangement has come about because as the area of London grew and absorbed neighbouring settlements, a series of administrative reforms did not amalgamate the City of London with the surrounding metropolitan area, and its unique political struc

    Greater London includes the most closely associated parts of the Greater London Urban Area and their historic buffers and includes, in five boroughs, significant parts of the Metropolitan Green Belt which protects designated greenfield land in a similar way to the city's parks. The closest and furthest boundaries are with Essex to the northeast between Sewardstonebury next to Epping Forest and Chingford and with the Mar Dyke between Bulphan and North Ockendon. Greater London is also bounded by H

    London is divided into 73 Parliamentary borough constituencies, formed from the combined area of several wards from one or more boroughs. Typically a borough is covered by two or three constituencies.

    The London region does not have city status granted by the Crown. The Cities of London and Westminster within it have received formal city status. Despite this, Greater London is commonly regarded as a city in the general senses of a conurbation and a municipality. A Lord Lieuten
