I am sure I am not alone with the feeling that London is the best city ever and anywhere... Well I really love that capital city and only because I spent there one of the best weeks in my life, but because that city is alive and you can feel that on your own. The first thing is to go too see the London's river the famuos Thames or may be better is having a nice ride on the river. Thay are many comanies to going with, thay all are really nice and confortable.

After that must take a look at the parliament and off course the big ban. Or may be having a nice lunch at the river side, if the weather is nice. Off course must go and have a ride at the London Eye, after of befor the ride to go and have a look in the movie museum - is necessary to go in, is fabolous. Than a nice shopping afternoon in Oxford and Regent's street and having a nice dinner in SOHO is inescapable. After all this having a good british beer in an original british pub and having a taxi trip home.

The day after is the museums day if it's raining. Fors is the Nationa Gallery and the Portret gallery because theese are really clouse to each-other, well British Museum as naturally and a lunch in the Tate Modern museum after Dali, Kandinsky, Picasso... and many many more famuos artist and having a river trip, going to see the Tate British, which is amaziiing. Having a look at the Hyde-park off course in late afternoon, than is the best. May be a hourse rideing on there is the best thing to do. A day when is raining, planns for inside: Westminster abbey, Buckingem palace (only in August an September is open), St. Paul Cathedral, Parliament etc.

Have more fun in London.

And trie to use an Oyster card in the Subway.

London History

London, England Christianity, which was introduced by the Romans, shaped so much of London’s history.  In fact, the first St. Paul’s Cathedral was built in 604 A.D. in London.  King Edward the Confessor moved his court to Westminster Abbey, thus enhancing the city’s importance. King William was crowned in Westminster Abbey in 1066.  He made the Tower of London which he used as his home and fortress.  London Bridge, made of stone, was built in 1476. Medieval London was so brutal because of the Black Plague or the Black Death.  It appeared in 1348, and repeated its outbreak in 1665.  Not all of London’s mishaps lead futile.  The Great Fire of...
