Books about London, England

About London

Capital city of England and the UK, London is a global city as well as home to the nation's political and financial centres. It offers many historical, heritage, artistic and cultural sites and collections as well as parks, gardens and shopping opportunities.

Many books and maps would be needed to even begin to outline the diverse and colourful history of the greater London area. Although some descriptions of London's past refer back to structures thought to date from about 4500 BC, most written histories tend to begin with Roman London or later periods. London as a capital city can be conveniently dated from about 100 AD when it superceeded Colchester as capital of the Roman province of Britannia. It is only since 1066 that coronations of English and British monarchs have taken place at Westminster Abbey in London.

Modern London attracts many people from all over the world who come to work, study or visit. While there are many visits for business in various forms, commercial, political, diplomatic and so on, visiting London is most commonly associated with tourism. London's shops and attractions including museums, galleries and 'experiences' cater to every interest and are supported by the experience of London itself; black cabs, red buses, red postboxes and telephone boxes, the world famous 'tube system' (the first underground passenger railway anywhere), together with numerous views and public areas such as Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, the South Bank of the Thames and so on.
