London is of course an ancient and historic city which has long been one of the key financial, trading, political, artistic, scientific, and technological centres of the world. London was first settled by the Romans in the mid 1st Century, and in those days it was called Londinum. The tiny settlement had, in those days, a fortified garrison on one of its hills, and occupied an area no larger than Hyde Park. From these humble beginnings, the city rapidly expanded to become one of the most significant in the Roman world north of the Alps, and succeeded Colchester as the capital of Britannia, with a population of 60,000 people. By about the 5th Century, however, the city was in ruin and the Romans had largely abandoned it to its fate, primarily as a result of far more pressing threats to the Roman Empire, such as the repeated Barbarian invasions.
The city was effectively abandoned following the Roman departure, and struggled on as an insignificant port and trading post for many hundreds of years. Its fortunes only began to rise in the year 886 following the decrees of the Saxon king Alfred the Great. By about the 11th Century London was once again the largest and most significant city in the country, and the building of Westminster Abby cemented its position as one of the most important cites in Europe. From then on the city grew in leaps and bounds, and this accelerated further following the agricultural and industrial revolution in Britain. London is now regarded as one of three pre-eminent global cities (the other two being New York and Hong Kong), and whatever material you read, will always be considered in the top few global cities in the world.
London today has a population of 8.63 million, which at its highest level since 1939. London divided into 32 Boroughs, which in total make up the large area known as Greater London (the 33rd administrative area is the City Of London, which forms the financial heart of the UK). London is exceptionally dominant within the UK as a whole, some would say to the detriment of other regions of the country, however it is an undisputed fact that many talented people from across the UK and the indeed the world flock to London to make their living.
London is a global and outward facing city, and this is reflected by its vote during the recent Brexit referendum. Whilst a majority of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, London voted by a large majority to remain. Interestingly, this has a led large numbers of Londoners to petition the Mayor of London that the city remain part of the EU, and leave the UK. Many Londoners would see the city as as “world city”, and so ethnically and culturally diverse from the rest of the country that it could become and independent city state.
