This is London, the capital city of England and the United Kingdom. The big wheel you can see is the Millennium Wheel or London Eye as it’s also known. It’s 135m high with 32 glass capsules. The wheel was opened in March 2000 to mark the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the new millennium. Opposite the Millennium Wheel you could find Big Ben, the famous clock tower and the Palace of Westminster, also known as the Houses of Parliament. This is where the government meets. One of the best things about London is its parks. In Regent’s Park you have the largest grass area for sports in Central London and an Open Air theatre. You can relax, walk, and run in the parks but you can’t cycle-only the police can do that! Horses are another good and ecological way of keeping order in London. This is Trafalgar Square with the National Gallery art museum in the background. Nelson’s column is a monument to Admiral Nelson who died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1815. You can also visit the British Museum in Great Russell Street or walk over the new Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern museum. When it opened on 10th June, the Bridge had to be closed after just a few days because it was moving too much. Don’t worry it’s ok, now. The Tate Modern museum is a converted old power station. On the other side of the Millennium Bridge is St. Paul’s Cathedral. It is a tourist attraction and you can walk the 530 steps up to the Gallery and see London. Another feature of London is the Changing of the Guard which takes place inside the grounds of Buckingham Palace every day at 11am. It lasts about 40 minutes but come early, as there are usually lots of people. You can take a boat along the Thames. This is Tower Bridge, it opens up for big boats and all the car traffic has to stop for about 15 minutes. You can also walk along the top bridge that joins the two towers. If you keep going east, you arrive in the new Docklands area. There are a lot of big offices and expensive new apartments on the river there. Time certainly flies when you’re travelling around London.
