London is the capital and most populous city of United Kingdom, Great Britain. It has today 8.540.000 people. Standing on the River Thames. It was founded by the Romans, who named it Londinium. London was founded about 0043 AD. But there were people living yet in the Bronze Age 4.500 BC. London's buildings are too diverse to be characterised by any particular architectural style, partly because of their varying ages. Following his victory in the Battle of Hastings, William, Duke of Normandy, was crowned King of England in the newly finished Westminster Abbey on Christmas Day 1066. William constructed the Tower of London - 1078, the first of the many Norman castles in England to be rebuilt in stone, in the southeastern corner of the city, to intimidate the native inhabitants. In 1097, William II began the building of Westminster Hall, close by the abbey of the same name. The hall became the basis of a new Palace of Westminster. Few structures in central London pre-date the Great Fire of 1666, these being a few trace Roman remains, the Tower of London and a few scattered Tudor survivors in the City. Further out is, for example, the Tudor period Hampton Court Palace, England's oldest surviving Tudor palace, built by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey c.1515. St Paul's Cathedral, London, is an Anglican cathedral, its dedication to Paul the Apostle dates back to the original church on this site, founded in AD 604. The present church, dating from the late 17th century, was designed in the English Baroque style by Sir Christopher Wren. The Tower Bridge (built 1886–1894) is a combined bascule and suspension bridge in London.
