London is one of the world’s truly great cities. With two thousand years of history it is the political capital of the United Kingdom, a financial centre of the world and an amazing cultural hub.
There is something timeless about London…When they hear its name, many people would think of the red telephone box, the foggy and rainy weather, the royal family, the alluring English accent or the heart of it all, the river Thames…But London is also an ever-changing city, constantly evolving and updating itself, from new skyscrapers on the city skyline to exciting new exhibitions and theatre productions. We will stroll through the West End – London’s famous entertainment district – taking in the sights and sounds of Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus. Pause to watch the street performers of Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square, lose yourself in the bustle of Chinatown and take in the beauty of the amazing historic buildings of the Royal Opera House and the National Gallery. If you need a break there are many cafes along the way– places to sit and watch the world go by. Come back in the evening to get the full benefit of London’s exciting pubs and food culture or enjoy in a show in one of the West End’s many theatres.
There are many intriguing tales and interesting facts relating to this exciting district and I want to tell you all about them.
