London, the capital of England, was founded 2000 years ago by the Romans as Londinium. The city has been Western Europe's largest city for centuries. Today 8.6 million people live there. It is the world's most-visited city as measured by the international arrivals. London's urban area is the second most populous in the EU, after Paris. The central area and the most important sights, theatres and restaurants are within the London underground train Circle Line on the northern bank of the River Thames. The trendy and tourist-ridden West End of London lies within the western portion of the loop and includes Soho, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Regent Street. Those without local roots will find this gigantic metropolis surprisingly diverse, and besides English, around 200 different languages are spoken.
