London is one of the world’s great cities – some say the greatest!
It was the Romans who first built the square mile now known as the City of London, which is the financial centre. Now 2,000 years later, it is the biggest city in Western Europe and has an economy that is larger than that of many countries.
London has been badly damaged several times, notably in 1666 when much was destroyed in the Great Fire, and then in WWII when bombs flattened many buildings.
