  • Westminster
    On the north bank of the River Thames is Westminster, long a center of London life. The area is particularly important to those of influence, containing several royal palaces, both Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey. It is therefore no surprise that the affluent, powerful, and those aspiring to those ranks, can be found frequenting the various locales.

  • The Liberty of the Savoy
    The Savoy is a small district set between Westminster and the City proper, and bordered to the south by the Thames. It is known to be a haven for those debtors wishing to escape the justice of the tipstaff.

  • Central London
    The innermost part of London, as its nomenclature would apply, the area around Westminster proper acts as the heart of the city. While frequented by those of station quite often, it shows much more diversity than the home of Parliament and the royal family.

  • The West End
    Technically including a flexibly large swath of the city, the West End of London is notable both for the diversity of its districts and for its general importance to the area. Originally (and still to this day) built as a series of palatial houses and fashionable shops, the definition of the West End has expanded to include less well-off areas like Covent Garden, generally closer to the City proper.

  • Kensington and Chelsea
    To the west of the City proper and Westminster are Kensington and Chelsea, two distinct parishes that share enough common traits beyond geography as to be lumped in together. Both are home to largely-wealthy populaces and their large mansions, though Chelsea is known both for its (increasingly diminishing) country beauty, as well as a hospital reportedly founded on the encouragement of Charles II's mistress, and a large barracks.

  • South of the Thames
    The largest, and least densely populated, area of London is south of the River Thames. While several large settlements exist (and a burgeoning system of industry has beginning to arise), small villages and country estates exist farther from the foul miasma of the inner city.
