London is a vibrant city filled with people, ideas and energy. It is the capital and largest city of both the United Kingdom, and of England. London is also the largest city in Western Europe and the European union. Greater London has an official population of nearly 8 million people – although the figure of over 14 million for the city’s total metropolitan area more accurately reflects London’s size and importance. London is one of the great “world cities” and remains a global capital of culture, fashion, finance, politics and trade.
The city is also not as expensive as you’d think. Many of London’s top attractions are actually free to enter, and a tube pass is an excellent (and economical) way to see the city. If you’re a student, bring your valid student ID. When there is an admission fee, there is also often concessions for students.
