London. The city, where all dreams come try…
My dear friends! On this autumn holidays I was in London. London is the capital city of England and of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Today it is one of the world’s most important financial and business centres and one of the largest cities in the world.
As you know, the famous red two-storeyed bus is the London Bus “Routemaster”. This bus became the symbol of the city. I think, all two-storeyed buses in Great Britain are miracles of technique and unbelievable fantasy!
One of the most interesting buildings is City Hall. It is a building in London, serving as the residence of Administration of Large London. There are a lot of tourists from different countries come to the City Hall.
There are many museums, libraries and galleries in London. The Tate Gallery is one of the well-known galleries in London. Henry Tate was a sugar manufacturer. He was fond of paintings and collected many pictures. The British Museum is a very interesting place in London. It was founded in 1753. The library of this museum has lots of books. There are many nice squares in London. Trafalgar Square is one of them and it is in the centre of the West End. One can see a statue of Lord Nelson in the middle of this square.
Westminster Palace is the seat of the British Parliament. Westminster Palace was founded in 1050. It is situated in the centre of London. Many great Englishmen were buried in the Abbey: Newton, Darwin and others. The Towers of the Houses of Parliament stand high above the city. On the highest tower there is the largest clock in the country which is known to the whole world as Big Ben. The clock «Big Ben» came into service in 1859. Big Ben is the biggest clock bell in Britain.
At last I want to say: London is amazing city !
