London, England

London is a city located in Europe. It is the capital of England and the United Kingdom and also thought to be one of the largest cities in the world (spanning 620 square miles). The City of London is very much influenced by culture, the economy, and travelers and tourists. London also has a unique type of underwater train service that connects the island to the mainland in Europe.

            Not only is London seen as one of the largest cities in the world, but it is also seen as the least religious. In fact, Christianity, the leading religion in London, (about 48 percent of the population) is not far ahead from being the most followed religion. Those who live in London and do not identify with a religion are a close second (about 20.5 percent of the population).

            Although London has been known for its large and non-religious population, London can also be seen as a country that develops many food choices and makes them their own. In the past, London has had a high immigration rate, and because of this, they were able to bring in a diverse range of food. Some of these foods people of London were able to adopt and put into their own culture. An example of a couple of foods they have done this to is tea and curry.

            London has been seen as a popular area by many and therefore has seen major population growths in the time that it has been a city and capital. Between 1801 and 1901, London grew to from a population of 1.1 million to a population of 6.6 million. Unfortunately, the effect that World War II had on London caused the population to drop significantly. So, London was not able to make its “prewar peak” until years after being rebuilt. In 2015, London’s population was around 8.6 million. The year 2018, because of increasing waves of immigration, brought London to a population of 9.046 million.
