Situated about fifteen kilometres west of the famous beach resort of Dartford, London is so old that you cannot empty a waste bin without unearthing Roman remains. Said by some to be a city without soul, London is in fact simply a city without colour. There were six million inhabitants at the last count but that was just the people - London has more pigeons and cars than humans. The night life rages on until at least eleven o'clock, at which time friendly groups of policemen (known fondly as Happy-Bobby-Greeters) will personally escort revellers home, reserving a special service for non-Caucasians. London is famous for being the home of the famous Royal Family marriage guidance service.
