Don't worry - there is only one London :).

The "different Londons" is the city over time. For example:

In a London known for its abject poverty, 19th century author Charles Dickens was known for using such destitution as the backdrop for many of his novels.

In a London so transformed by multiculturalism, today's tourist, at times, feels as though he or she is walking through a suburb of New Delhi.


Hope that helps :).
