1 LONDON THE CAPITAL OF ENGLAND AND OF THE UK London, the capital of England and the UK, is the world's ninth-largest city: the population of London is about 8 million.

2 London lies on either side of the River Thames and only 60 km from the North Sea, in southeast England. London is made up of two ancient cities which are now joined together. They are: the City of London, know simply as 'the City' which is the business and financial heart of the United Kingdom. It was the original settlement (ancient Londinium).

3 the City of Westminster, where Parliament and most of the government offices are located. Also Buckingham Palace, the official London residence of the Queen and the Royal family are located there too. Together they all make up a region known as Greater London. WHAT TO SEE AND DO IN LONDON Top 10 Places to Visit in London

4 Tourist attractions are mainly in Central London. The most popular and our favourite attractions are: London Eye London seen from the London Eye A recent but already very popular tourist attraction is the London Eye, a giant observation wheel which gives you a panoramic view of London. The 135 meter tall structure was built as part of London's millennium celebrations. The big wheel it s the world's highest observation wheel.

5 Houses of Parliament The Houses of Parliament, also known as the Palace of Westminster, was the royal home of the Kings and Queens of England until Today the Palace of Westminster is the seat of Britain's two parliamentary houses, the House of Lords and the House of Commons. The Clock Tower of the Palace of Westminster, commonly known as the Big Ben, is one of London's most famous landmarks. The name Big Ben actually refers to the clock's hour bell (a huge thirteen ton bell that strikes the hour), the largest of the clock's five bells. A light in the clock tower tells when the House of Commons is in session.

6 Westminster Abbey Westminster Abbey, located near the Houses of Parliament, is more a historical site than a religious site. Westminster Abbey is one of the oldest buildings in London and one of the most important religious centres in the country. Many kings and Queens and famous people are buried there. Every King and Queen has been crowned in Westminster Abbey since William the Conqueror in 1066.

7 Buckingham Palace Buckingham Palace is one of the most popular landmarks in London. It is the London home of the British Royal family. It has been the official London residence of Britain's monarchy since Queen Victoria was the first monarch to live there. Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace The Queen's Guard changes in the Forecourt of Buckingham Palace at 11:30am every day in the summer and every other day in the winter.

8 St Paul's Cathedral The dome of St Pauls Cathedral is the second biggest dome in the world, after St Peter's in Rome. Trafalgar Square

9 Trafalgar Square is the largest square in London. Trafalgar Square was built in honour of Admiral Lord Nelson after his victory in 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar. Britain's most famous sea Lord, Nelson died in this famous battle against Napoleon. Dominating the square is the 56 m Nelson's Column, with its 5.5m statue of Nelson on top. It was erected in On the north side of Trafalgar Square is the National Gallery. The National Gallery houses one of the biggest picture collections in the world. Tower of London The Tower of London was built more than 900 years ago and houses the Crown Jewels, guarded by men who wear 16th century

10 costumes. Throughout its long history, the Tower has served as a royal palace and fortress, prison and place of execution, an arsenal and jewel house. The Tower has been both a palace and a prison for kings, queens and other important people: Elizabeth I was held prisoner in the Tower for two months by the order of her half sister, Queen Mary. Mary felt that her throne was being threatened by Elizabeth, so she imprisoned her in the Tower. Tower Bridge London s Tower Bridge is one of the most recognizable bridges in the world. It is close to the Tower of London.
