Covent Garden - Opera din Londra

In this quadrangle the Abbey or Convent of St. Peter, Westminster, maintained a large kitchen garden throughout the Middle Ages to provide its daily food. Over the next three centuries, the monks' old "convent garden" became a major source of fruit and vegetables in London and was managed by a succession of leaseholders by grant from the Abbot of Westminster.

This type of lease eventually led to property disputes throughout the kingdom, which King Henry VIII solved in 1540 by the stroke of a pen when he dissolved the monasteries and appropriated their land.
King Henry VIII granted part of the land to John Russell, Baron Russell, Lord High Admiral, and later Earl of Bedford. In fulfilment of his father's dying wish, King Edward VI bestowed the remainder of the convent garden in 1547 to his maternal uncle, Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset who began building Somerset House on the south side of The Strand the next year.

When Seymour was beheaded for treason in 1552, the land once again ...

LONDRA

Just alongside is the church of St Martins in the Fields, which is open throughout the day and has been around for a long time. The current church dates from 1726, but there has been a church on that site since the thirteenth century. This is the parish church for Buckingham Palace and, yes, there is a royal pew. The church has some wonderful lunch time concerts, which are normally free.

On the next side of the square is the National Portrait Gallery, which is fascinating because it has the largest collection of portraits in the world although, understandably, only part of the collection is on show at any one time. Behind is Charing Cross station, not of great interest except that in the side road running alongside is The Players Theatre, old time music hall where the audience is expected to dress up in the right costume and positively join in with the show.

Running from there is the Strand, which was once the fashionable thoroughfare of London but fell on slightly seedier times. ...

London - Introducing the city (atestat)

The royal residence of the British monarchs since the Middle Ages, Windsor Castle adorns the north bank of the River Thames about 35 kilometers (about 20 miles) west of London in the ancient town of Windsor. William the Conqueror originally chose this site for a fortress in the 11th century, after his triumph at the Battle of Hastings. Over the next eight centuries, various monarchs transformed and altered the castle into a 5-hectare (13-acre) royal spread.
The dominant feature of Windsor Castle is its 16th-century stone Round Tower, which divides the castle into two courts, called the Lower Ward and the Upper Ward. The Lower Ward, to the west, holds Albert Memorial Chapel as well as the Perpendicular-style Saint George’s Chapel, a royal mausoleum and the site of the annual installation of the Knights of the Garter. The Upper Ward contains the State Apartments, the royals’ living quarters and guest apartments. The celebrated Throne Room and the Waterloo Chamber are among the rooms ...

London

So that’s one quick fix on part of London from one central point. But London has so many other central points. You can do the same sort of orientation from Piccadilly Circus or Hyde Park Corner or, indeed, pretty much anywhere. Once you have your bearings you can start to concentrate on specific areas.

Londra

Prior to the late 1880s, when the London County Council (LCC) was established, the four counties of Essex, Kent, Middlesex, and Surrey administered the area, together with the ancient City of London and many smaller local authorities. In 1965 Greater London was created under the jurisdiction of the Greater London Council.

This council was abolished in 1986, and today each inner and outer borough and the City of London itself has its own governing council. The borough councils consist of councillors elected every four years, who in turn annually elect their presiding official. Councils are responsible for the provision of most local services including education, housing, social services, local planning, roads, refuse collection, recreation, and culture.

Londra in viziunea lui Charles Dickens

Morala amara a ''Comediei Umane'' este aceea ca raul si imoralitatea prevaleaza in societate. Balzac isi introduce personajele prin descrieri lungi si minutioase ale mediului in care acestea traiesc, considerand ca mediul si personajul se influenteaza reciproc.

Oliver Cromwell

Parlamentul, ca sa-si asigure victoria, sfarsi prin a semna in 1643 Covenant-ul, acceptand riscul de a vedea o armata presbiteriana instalata langa zidurile Londrei. Alianta cu scotienii I-a adus parlamentului, in 1644, victoria de la Marston Moor, langa York. Cel mai bun soldat de la Marston Moor a fost un om nou: Oliver Cromwell, mic sguire din Huntingdon, varul lui Hampden si, ca si el, puritan din adolescenta. Se lasa in voia emotiilor mai mult decat un englez obisnuit si-i vedeai deseori lacrimi in ochi.Cand era vorba sa-si apere credinta, Cromwell putea sa fie dur, dar era de o blandete nemarginita fata de acei bieti cerstini care nu cereau altceva decat sa traiasca in deplina curatenie sufleteacsa. De multe ori, in preajma unei mari batalii sau a unei importante hotarari, a fost vazut fugind de oameni, inchizandu-se undeva cu biblia in mana si rugandu-se vreme indelungata. Deputat ...

Primul razvoi civil - Anglia

In lipsa unui mecanism constitutional, dezbaterea parlamentara lua forma unei batalii corp la corp. Vor trebui sa vina calamitatile unui razboi civil pentru a da nasAZtere tolerantei politice, asa cum in alte tari, erorile persecutiilor vor impune toleranta religioasa.
IV. Iau parte activa la razboi - in ambele taAZbere - cei mai buni oameni ai natiunii. Astfel ca lupta va fi destul de umana. Bataliile vor fi sangeroase, pentru ca soldatii sunt viteji, dar prizonierii, in afara de irlandezi si preotii catolici, vor fi bine tratati.
