London districts Greater London consists of 32 London boroughs and the City of London that, together with the office of the Mayor of London, form the basis for London's local government. The Mayor of London is elected by London residents and should not be confused with the Lord Mayor of the City of London. The names of several boroughs, such as Westminster or Camden, are well-known, others less so, such as Wandsworth or Lewisham.
Climate Despite a perhaps unfair reputation for being unsettled, London enjoys a dry and mild climate on average. Only one in three days on average will bring rain and often only for a short period.

Shopping If it's available, it can be bought in London. Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street, all in the West End, are some of the most famous shopping destinations in the world, but they are also just the tip of the iceberg, and many London districts and town centres have unique shopping attractions of their own.
Live Music London is one of the best cities in the world for concerts, spanning from new musical trends to well known bands. Between huge concert facilities and small pubs, there are hundreds of venues that organise and promote live music every week. Many concerts, especially in smaller or less known places are free, so there is plenty of choice even for tourists on a budget.
Eat It is a huge task for a visitor to find the 'right place' to eat in London - with the 'right atmosphere', at the 'right price' - largely because, as in any big city, there are literally thousands of venues from which to choose, ranging from fast food joints, pubs, and mainstream chains all the way up to some of the most exclusive restaurants in the world which attract the kind of clientele that don't need to ask the price. Sorting the good from the bad isn't easy, but London has something to accommodate all budgets and tastes.

Tip uses the following price ranges for a typical meal for one, including soft drink:
Budget Below £15
Mid-range £15-50
Splurge £50+
Hotels Your budget will have a lot to do with what part of London you will want to stay in. Tourist-standard prices range from £20-200 per person per night. Expect smaller than average rooms especially at the low end of this range. As a general rule, expect to pay between £75-150 per night for a 2 or 3 star hotel in the central area of the city. Many of the big name chain hotels now offer substantial discounts (with rates often down as low as £30-£50 per room per night) if you book well in advance, but the drawback is that you have to pay the full amount upfront at the time of booking and there are no refunds if you cancel. The heart of the West End is the most expensive place to stay and most hotels are either 4 or 5 star and most will command a hefty price premium.
Museums and Galleries London hosts an outstanding collection of world-class museums. Even better, it is the only one of the traditional "alpha world cities" (London, Tokyo, New York City and Paris) in which the majority of the museums have no entrance charges, thus allowing visitors to make multiple visits with ease. Although London can be expensive, many of the best museums and galleries are free including:
- British Museum
- National Gallery
- National Portrait Gallery
- Victoria and Albert Museum
- Natural History Museum
- Tate Modern
- Tate Britain

De wikipedia sobre Londres

Londres (London en inglés) es la capital de Inglaterra y del Reino Unido. Situada a orillas del río Támesis en el sureste de la isla de Gran Bretaña, su establecimiento se data más de dos milenios atrás, fue fundada alrededor del año 43 por los romanos con el nombre de Londinium. El corazón de la ciudad, la antigua City de Londres, todavía conserva sus límites medievales, pero, al menos, a partir del siglo XIX, el nombre de "Londres" también ha denominado a la metrópoli que ha crecido a su alrededor. Actualmente, esta aglomeración conurbana forma la región de Londres de Inglaterra y el área administrativa del Gran Londres, con su propio alcalde y asamblea.

En el Gran Londres se encuentran cuatro lugares distinguidos como Patrimonio de la Humanidad: la Torre de Londres; el asentamiento de Greenwich; el Real Jardín Botánico de Kew; y el lugar comprendido por el Palacio de Westminster, Abadía de Westminster y la Iglesia de Santa Margarita.

La población de Londres está formada por un amplio número de etnias, culturas, y religiones, además en la ciudad se hablan más de 300 lenguas. En 2007 la población oficial era de 7. 512. 400 en el área del Gran Londres. El Área Urbana del Gran Londres tiene una población de 8. 278. 251 y el área metropolitana, la más grande de la UE, tiene una población estimada de 12 a 14 millones de personas. La red de transporte público, administrada por Transport for London, es una de las más extensas del mundo, y el Aeropuerto Heathrow es el aeropuerto con mayor tráfico internacional por volumen de pasajeros de Europa.
