London was the capital of the United Kingdom on Earth.

By the late 19th century, London was hundreds of square kilometers in size. The Sherlock Holmes novels and stories were largely based in this city. (TNG: "Elementary, Dear Data")

From 1888 to 1891, seventeen women were killed in London by the Redjac entity incarnated as "Jack the Ripper". (TOS: "Wolf in the Fold")

When an away team from the USS Enterprise-D had traveled back to San Francisco in 1893, Captain Picard claimed to lead a group of actors which had played in full houses in London, Paris and Milan. (TNG: "Time's Arrow, Part II")

In 2005, Marina Raymond (née Despina), the future wife of Jonathan F. Raymond, was born in this city. (TNG: "The Neutral Zone")

A holographic representation of 19th century London was recreated by Lieutenant Commander Data for his recreation of the role he played of Sherlock Holmes. (TNG: "Elementary, Dear Data")

In a holoprogram set in France in 1944, British radio reported the sky over London was grey with a chance for rain in the afternoon. The entire broadcast, however, included an encrypted message to the French Resistance cell in Sainte Claire. (VOY: "The Killing Game")

In the mid-20th century, a major publishing house was located in this city. In 1941, it published the story The Long Dark Tunnel, a Dixon Hill detective novel. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

In 1953, a United Nations meeting took place in London. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

Literature

In The Big Good-Bye, the master criminal Silent Forrester, when introducing himself to the desk clerk at the Plaza, identified himself as, "I'm Mr. Forrester, London". (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

During the 21st century, London may have been the home of a professional baseball team, the London Kings, who were established in TNG: "The Big Goodbye" and DS9: "If Wishes Were Horses". However, since the team was a member of Major League Baseball (they played in the World Series, which is an MLB trademark), whose teams have traditionally been based in North America, it is equally likely the team could have been based out of London, Ontario, Canada. The current home baseball team of London UK is known as the London Warriors.
The pages seen in the "The Big Goodbye" were from the detective novel, The Listening Man, by author John A. Moroso. This novel was published in 1924. Information on London was from page 138.
