About LondonIn the heart of the Daniel Boone National Forest, London has been a crossroads for travelers ever since settlers first ventured through the Cumberland Gap on the Wilderness Road. It now is a regional center for trade, governmental services, industry and tourism.
You are bound to have an “egg-citing” time at the 4-day celebration known as the World Chicken Festival, held in London each September. The festival honors Colonel Harland Sanders, who opened his first restaurant in nearby Corbin in the 1940s. More than 250,000 folks come each year to see the world's largest skillet, the Gospel Egg-stravaganza, the parade and live entertainment, volleyball tournament, midway-style rides and car show.
