(Did you mean the Eastercon named “London”?)

London has hosted three Worldcons: Loncon, Loncon II and Loncon 3, and 13 Eastercons: Whitcon Loncon, London SF Con, Coroncon, London (stet), SCI-CON 70, Confabulation, Evolution, Orbital 2008, Odyssey 2010, Olympus, Dysprosium, and Ytterbium.

ICSF have run Picocon at Imperial College in February since 1983, and Nine Worlds ran from 2013 to 2018.

The London Circle meetings (The Tun) have run continuously since 1947. The BSFA run monthly author interviews, and a joint mini-convention with the Science Fiction Foundation in the summer that combines their AGMs with author talks. The City Illiterates still meet.

Defunct meetings include the Science Fiction Club of London and Wiggle
