The capital of the UK is visited by millions of tourists a year. There is nothing strange in that as London is home to an incredible number of attractions, wonderful old houses, fantastic museums, large and beautiful parks and, of course, the unique British charm. London is a very old city. In 43 AD Romans established a settlement on the River Thames. Over the centuries the settlement has grown and has turned into a real metropolis with a population of 7.5 million people (if counting together with London suburbs, then the number is 12 million). Only visits to numerous traditional English pubs, which are so famous in London, will prevent you from estimating the size and glory of the city.
