'When a man is tired of London he is tired of life'.
The famous saying of doctor Johnson is still true for the eight million who live in the capital and the countless millions of tourists who flock there every year.
London is a true megalopolis : it is the largest city in Europe and the third or fourth largest in the world. But the City of London, the financial district and the heart of the capital is the world's smallest city. It measures only one square mile. Indeed the City is sometimes referred to simply as the Square Mile.
The Lord Mayor of London is in fact the mayor of the city only, and he has to ask permission to travel officially to other parts of the capital. But, as you can imagine, this permission is rarely refused.
There are scores of theatres, dozens of world-famous shops, fine architecture.
From the East End, the old docklands and home of the true Londoner, to the West End with its theatres, cinemas and glittering night life, not forgetting the cosmopolitan Soho, originally a French quarter and now packed with restaurants offering every kind of cuisine imaginable (though rarely English).
London is a vast, bustling, exciting city so full of life that it is easy to forget that it has been destroyed at least four times.
When reconstruction began after the Second World War, it was decided to decongest the city. The concept of 'new towns' was adopted to move inhabitants and companies out of the centre into custom-built towns within easy to reach of the capital. But judging by today's rush-hour traffic jams, the solution has only been partly successful.
London is a city where tradition and modernity rub shoulders with easy familiarity, where the scarlet uniforms of the Horse Guards blend with the often outrageous fashions of the young along King's Road. The capital has always had a cosmopolitan vocation and the unsuspecting visitor may be forgiven his bewilderment at the Caribbean dancing of the Notting Hill Carnival or the snaking dragons of the Chinese New Year celebrations in Chinatown.
If London has lost some of its international influence since the 1950's, it has retained and increased its fascination by incorporating influences from all over the world.
