Founded by the Romans, made the capital of a united England by William the Conqueror in 1066, site of the world's first stock exchanges, 19th century focus of the emerging world economy, home to the mother of all parliaments, London has become a global center of business, finance, and entertainment. Famous museums, such as the Victoria and Albert, and medieval architectural masterpieces, such as Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London, as well as its theatres make London one of the world's great cities.
