London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom. It is home to the Houses of Parliament (including Big Ben), the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace and the British Prime Minister's house at 10 Downing Street.
During the War of 1996, London was one of the major cities targeted by the City Destroyers, in which one positioned itself over the Houses of Parliament. Ultimately, London was attacked, making it among the many cities that were destroyed. The Royal Family and the Prime Minister were successfully evacuated from the city.  The City Destroyer carried on north, destroying two more English cities (Birmingham and Liverpool) before being stopped at Belfast.
Following the invasion, reconstruction of London began in 1997 and was completed by 2010.
