London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom. It was the city used in both the mission packs available for the original Grand Theft Auto game (GTA 1969 and GTA 1961). To date, London and Manchester (also located in England, United Kingdom) have been the only real-life city to be used in a GTA game, as all others have been fictional cities based on real American cities (apart from Anywhere City); however, other real cities have been mentioned.

The temporal setting has been exploited through a number of cultural and historical references, including the appearance of a James Bond-like character and the use of more or less authentic slang. In addition, the cars drive on the left side of the road, as is the case in Britain, and authentic London place names were used.
