A small trend in Urban Fantasy is to make the city London a main charachter. Such stories typically make use of London's history and culture to guide the stories themes and mood, some also base the magic systems on London but this is not universal. Expect lots of references to London's geography.

Needs a Better Title


  • Neverwhere - All the major pieces are there: a focus on the city itself, lots of geographical allusions. However focusing on an alternative London moves Neverwhere into Unbuilt Trope territory.
  • Rivers of London - The front cover alone has more London references than a small tourists guide.
  • Matthew Swift - Notable for heavily basing the magic system on the city.
