My dream town
can see some of them but we don't have a chance to visit all of
them. So lot of people watch documentary films about these
countries or read some books. They are interested more in those
countries they can't see. My home town is very interesting but I
would like to speak about London because it's more attractive for
me. Sometimes in the future I would like to visit it.
London, the capital of England and of Great Britain, is an
exciting city. It's a city of traditions, historic buildings,
monuments, theatres, parks and interesting museums. About 9
million people live in London and its suburbs. The river Thames
flows from west to east and divides London into two parts. London
is also a big industrial city producing clothing, food, drinks
and many specialized goods.
Central London consists of three main areas. The City is the
oldest with the Tower on the north bank of the river Thames and
In the past the Tower used to be a fortress, a royal palace and a
prison. Many famous people in English history were imprisoned and
put to death there. Now the Tower is a museum of arms. It's also
the place where the crown jewels are kept.
The guards of the Tower are called Bufeaters. It is said that
in the past they ate a lot of beef while people in England were
starving. Even now they live in small houses in the Tower with
their families and they look after the Tower.
Tower Bridge is near the Tower of London in the City.
It is the most interesting bridge across the Thames, because it opens in the middle to let large ships pass by and down the river.
Visitors to London can go inside its towers, where there is a
museum.About 20 minutes' walk from the Tower there is another
historical building, St.Paul's Cathedral, the greatest of England
churches. It's one of the famous sights of the City of London. It
is large and it was built between 1675 and 1710. The cathedral is
the work of a well-known English architect Sir Christopher Wren,
who planned it. The original old St.Paul's was destroyed by the
Great Fire of London in 1666.
