 City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although city can refer to an agglomeration including suburban and satellite areas, the term is not appropriate for a conurbation (cluster) of distinct urban places, nor for a wider metropolitan area including more than one city, each acting as a focus for parts of the area.
A city is an urban area that is differentiated from a town, village, or hamlet by size, population density, importance, or legal status.
A large share of a city's area is primarily taken up by housing, which is then supported by infrastructure such as roads, streets and often public transport routes such as a subway or a metro rail system.

 City of London - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The City of London is England's smallest ceremonial county by both population and area covered and is the second smallest British city in both population and size, after St David's in Wales.
