London was the capital city of England, Brytain and the centre of much political activity in the country. It was likely the capital city, as its equivalent in Will's world was to Britain. Tramcars were a common form of transport here.
Locations[edit | edit source]
Tony Makarios lived in Clarice Walk and was abducted by Marisa Coulter from the area to be taken to Bolvangar. The market in Pie Street was close to St Catherine's Oratory. Denmark Street, Hangman's Wharf and King George's Steps lead to a warehouse where captured children were held before being sent to the North.
The flat was near the wide and well-lit embankment of the river.
The King held his weekly Council of State at the Palace. Meetings of the Prime Minister's special advisory body, the Cabinet Council, of which both Lord Asriel and Dr Carne were members, were also held at the Palace.
The Institute headquarters were a grand, stone building a twenty-minute walk from Marisa Coulter's flat.
