  • england = .uk, Inglaterra, Angleterre, Inghilterra, Albion, 英国, Royaume-Uni, UK, 51st State = Member of the UK (United Kingdom) and thus the EU (European Union). Adjective "English" or sometimes "British" or "Brit" or "pom" or "tommy" or "limey".
  • england london = Londres, Londra, Londyn, 伦敦, 倫敦, Londinium = Administrative and legislative and commercial capital of England and the UK. London has many famous landmarks and much history and influence. One of the world's financial centres originally in the City of London ("The Square Mile") and now also Docklands to the east. Founded as Londinium by the Romans in around 50AD, but the name is thought to be pre-Roman. Visit the UK Parliament, or 10 Downing Street, or the Mayor's site for goverment; or maybe the Science Museum, the Museum of London and the London Eye for illumination. The locals are sometimes known as "Londoners".
  • england london docklands canary wharf = "The Wharf" = The original wharf was constructed in 1936, and gained its name because the owners built a warehouse for their imports of fruit from the Mediterranean and the Canary Islands. After major redevelopment in the 1990s this area became home to many financial and household-name firms such as HSBC escaping from the City. See CanaryWharfJobs.co.uk for jobs in the area.
