Historically London was founded by the Romans and was originally called Londinium. It has been the seat of power for England and the United Kingdom ever since. Central London is the heart of the capital city and it doesn't disappoint. The population of Central London circa the 1940s is 4,013,400 people. While the game's grid takes liberties with defining the area there is no actual official definition of the borders of Central or Inner London. But it is a high density built environment with high land values, an elevated daytime population and a concentration of regionally, nationally and internationally significant organisations and facilities. The River Thames (pronounced: tems) winds it's way through Central London, it acts as its southern border of the West End and isolates a bit of the southern portion of the East End.

Road distances to London are traditionally measured from a central point at East End's Charing Cross, which is marked by the statue of King Charles I at the junction of the Strand, Whitehall and Cockspur Street, just south of Trafalgar Square.

London is a leading global city, with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence. 43 universities within Greater London form the largest concentration of higher education in Europe. London has a diverse range of peoples and cultures, and more than 300 languages are spoken within Greater London. London was the world's most populous city from around 1831 to 1925. London is a world cultural capital, circa 1940s that it was an Empire encompassing such places as Aden, Australia, Canada, Cyprus, East Africa, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Iraq, Jamaica, Kuwait, New Guinea, New Zealand, Oman, South Africa, The Bahamas, and West Africa.

In Game Grid

The large grid of Central London is split into two more digestible grids of the grittier East End and the posher West End.

Tucked away hidden from Muggle sight in different parts in the East End are the Wizarding Areas of Diagon Alley which has a branch off into the dark and seedy Knockturn Alley. The Ministry of Magic which can be found via a toilet in the Underground Tube Station or in Westminster where there's a Telephone Booth that acts as an elevator to anyone that rings up M-A-G-I-C. St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries is located in Holborn and appears as a condemned Department Store.

Every grid comes with a unique set of coordinates. The London grid is 6 neighborhoods going north to south and West End is the letters A thru D, East End is the letters E thru H. Making for 24 neighborhoods per 'End' and 48 neighborhoods in total of 'Muggle London' available.
