London is the capital city of the United Kingdom, located in England’s southeast. The city stretches for 1,479 square kilometers, and is bisected medially by the Thames, the second-longest river in England.
As the city’s layout snakes along the Thames, it follows no grid (or, some might say, logic) and can present a real challenge to tourists. It’s a wonderful place to go for a wander and simply stumble upon major sights, ancient alleyways, half-hidden pubs, markets and galleries, but having a city map handy while you’re sightseeing is still highly recommended.
