It was the most populous region, urban zone and metropolitan area in the United Kingdom. Standing on the Thames River, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who named it Londinium.
Later, the city is seen for a moment on a TV News report where the 2012 Summer Olympics were to take place but were suspended due to the major earthquake that hit the city. Several people ran through the streets on the chariots in hope to escape the destruction, but to no avail. In addition, hundreds of thousands of people began marching down 10 Downing Street in protest, demanding to know why the government was staying silent on, and downright censoring information regarding the 2012 apocalypse.
The only known survivors of London are Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, and the British Prime Minister. In the movie, the two royals are seen for a moment exiting their helicopter with their two corgis. They survived as they were seen boarding the Arks.
In the aftermath of the 2012 apocalypse, London was destroyed and submerged underwater for a long period of time.
