London 2102
From Wikipedia, the lightly-sponsored encyclopedia

South Croydon Rocks
EU Nation: ReUnited Kingdom
Country: English Archipelago
Area: 609 sq mi (1,577 kmĀ²)
Depth below sea level: 138m
This article is about a location in the ReUnited Kingdom. For other uses, see London (disambiguation).

London is the former capital city of the English Archipelago.

An important settlement for around two millennia, London is today one of the world's leading underwater theme parks.

Only a few remnants of Old London remain above sea level, notably Purley Cliffs and Biggin Hill. At low tide the London Eye, rebuilt following terrorist attack in 2039, can just be seen poking above the waters of Westminster Bay.

London forms part of the Northwest European continental shelf, and falls under the administrative jurisdiction of the ReUnited Kingdom.

Tourism and culture
Visitors to London usually set sail from the nation's capital, Birmingham-on-Sea. Hoverskims depart from Bullring Beach every hour, taking approximately seventeen minutes to reach the Greater London Maritime Zone. On arrival at North Greenwich Floating Pierhead, visitors descend by glass elevator into the world's largest underwater seadome - The CO2. Here all Carbon Passports are scanned and debited, and those with Negative Emission Equity are quarantined until their personal account equalises.

The Canary Wharf Islands

Bay-top attractions include the Hammersmith Lightship, Harrow Weald Island and the Dagenham International Surfboard Marina. A honeymoon resort has been established on the Canary Wharf Islands - an artificial archipelago of submerged skyscrapers. Couples can get married on a variety of themed lagoon beaches, taking full advantage of the area's tropical climate. Because the site lies in international waters, inter-species marriages are permitted here.

London's largest underwater resort is the Bayswater Seabed Spa, visited by an estimated 3.7 million people in 2099 [citation needed]. There are four thousand luxury pressurised hotel rooms, each with a view over the Hyde Park Coral Reef. The most popular subaqueous excursions are the Big Ben Diving Bell Experience and the Harrods Emporium Retail Blowout. In April 2103 the hotel's Banqueting Centre will host the 91st "Global Warming - Fact or Fiction?" Conference, sponsored by the George Bush IV Memorial Foundation.

Environmental history
Main article: History of pre-Innundation London.
Much of London was lost beneath the sea during the three-day winter of 2063 when the Thames Riverwall gave way. The subsequent tidal wave caused 13 million deaths in the Woolwich area alone, and finally ended a century of property price rises across the capital. Private equity consortium Metrowet was later found guilty of gross negligence and its directors banished to Lunar Penal Camp 7. English First Minister Jadine Mbutu was forced to relocate Parliament first to Hampstead and then, as water levels rose further, to a village hall just outside Coventry.

Archaeologists recently embarked on a series of deep-level dives to recover artefacts from the London surface[27]. Beneath Livingstone Square they found evidence of an ancient means of submarine travel called Oyster, whereby residents used blue cards to propel themselves along flooded tubes in leaky metal carriages. They also discovered millions of abandoned rusty four-wheeled vehicles, each powered by a petrol-driven engine banned under the Mumbai Convention of 2070. Carbon Police are currently attempting to trace the former owners of these vehicles so that their descendants can be sued for contributing to global flooding.
