London

London is the fundamental setting in which the root of conflicts and peculiar events frequently take place, such as the Jack the Ripper incident.

Overview

London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom and the largest metropolitan area in the country. Located near the River Thames, it is a global city that prominently thrives in arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, and tourism and transport.[1]
