    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.

    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 term Greater Londonhas 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 metropolitanarea, and its unique political structure was retained. Outside the limited boundaries of the City, a variety of arrangements has governed the wider area since 1855, culminating in the creation of the Greater London administrative area in 1965. The term Greater London was used well before 1965, particularly to refer to the Metropolitan Police District (such as in the 1901 census), the area of the Metropolitan Water Board (favoured by the London County Council for statistics), the London Passenger Transport Area and the area define...

    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[clarification needed] 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 Hertfordshire to the north, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire to the west, Kent to the southeast and Surrey to the south and southwest. The highest point is Westerham Heights, in the North Downs and on the boundary with Kent, at 245 m (804 ft).Central government has implemented small boundary changes. The greatest were the 1969 transfers of Farleigh to Surrey and Knockholt to Kent. Others have included exchange of two Thames islands with Surrey and adjustments during the 1990...

    Greater London Authority

    Greater London is under the strategic local governance of the Greater London Authority (GLA). It consists of an elected assembly, the London Assembly, and an executive head, the Mayor of London.

    Status

    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.[note 1] Despite this, Greater London is commonly regarded as a city in the general senses of a conurbation and a municipality. A Lord Lieutenant of Greater London is appointed for its area, excluding the City of London. For the purposes of the Lieutenancies Act 1997, this area is defined as a county. The term "London" usually refers to region or to...

Despite the prevalence of Anglican churches, weekly...

    Publicly funded education has been administered through 33 LEAs, which correspond to the City of London and the 32 London boroughs, since the 1990 enactment of the Education Reform Act 1988. From 1965 to 1990, 12 Inner London boroughs and the City of London were served by the Inner London Education Authority. The introduction of comprehensive schools, directed by Circular 10/65 in 1965, was mostly followed in Greater London; however, 19 grammar schools have been retained in some Outer London boroughs, with Sutton having the most with five, followed by Bexley with four and others in five other boroughs. In these boroughs the state schools outperform the (relatively few) independent schools. In inner London, private schools always get the best results and are larger in number. At GCSE and A level, Outer London boroughs have broadly better results than Inner Londonboroughs. At GCSE, the best borough is Kingston upon Thames, closely followed by Sutton.
