Facts about London

London is not only the largest city in the United Kingdom, but it is also the capital city of England. Over nine million people reside within the 611 square miles that make up Greater London. A greenbelt surrounds the region and prevents further outward growth. Both the City of London and City of Westminster are located within Greater London. The city was founded by the Romans, who had a walled settlement along the Thames River. In the fifth century, there were several Anglo-Saxon attacks and during the ninth century the region saw Viking attacks. The King of England was established by the Normans in 1067. To this day, the United Kingdom remains a constitutional monarchy, meaning there is the royal family but also a parliament that makes and passes legislation. Over the years, London has produced numerous famous people including but not limited to:

- Michael Faraday (1791-1867) Scientist
- Geoffrey Chaucer (c1340-1400) Writer
- John Milton (1608-1674) Writer
- Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) Writer
- Alan Turing (1912-54) Mathematician
- Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980) Film Director

Now, London is a global metropolitan that is known for its history, culture, financial institutions, and sports teams. The city boasts four UNESCO World Heritage sites: The Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey including Saint Margaret's Church, Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, Tower of London, and Maritime Greenwich. There are over 240 galleries and museums throughout the city and over 40 free festivals that occur over the calendar year. However, not everyone who books flights to London is going for tourist reasons. It is also competitive with New York City when it comes to banking and insurance business. When it comes to sporting events, London is home to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and has been the host city for the Summer Olympic Games on three separate occasions. Whatever your reason for buying a ticket to London, we hope you enjoy your trip!
