London is a city in Kentucky.
London is located on the region's main north-south route, Interstate 75. The city has two exits—Kentucky Route 80 (Exit 41) to the north and Kentucky Route 192 (Exit 38) to the south.
The main route from the west is Kentucky 80, an effective extension of the Cumberland Parkway, a highway that is part of the state's parkway system of former toll roads. From the east, the main route is the Hal Rogers Parkway, another road in the parkway system that ends in London.
London is located in a "dry" county that prohibits alcohol sales. However, the city of London has voted to allow the sale of alcohol by the drink in larger restaurants (those seating at least 100). Until 2011, the nearest towns that allowed package alcohol sales were about an hour's drive away. Since then, three closer towns have voted to allow such sales; the nearest such town is now Corbin, about 15 minutes south on I-75.
