London: It's the Place for Me!
London is one of the most famous capital cities in the world, with so many famous places in it. Every time you turn around, it’s like you see another landmark!
I was lucky enough to spend a week there. One of the major tourist areas is the West End. Here you can find everything from museums to famous sights and of course London’s West End theatres. There’s so much on offer that whatever you like, you’ll find something to entertain you.
One of the most famous sights to see in London is Buckingham Palace, which was built over 300 years ago. The palace is the official home of Britain’s monarchy. You can take a tour of some parts of the palace and a selfie with one of the soldiers who guard the palace in their red coats is a must for most visitors.
The Tower of London is one of the city’s most historic sites. The Crown Jewels are kept here. It’s well worth a visit. From there, you can take a walk across the famous Tower Bridge.
Another interesting place to visit is the South Bank. This three-kilometer stretch along the River Thames is home to some of the world’s most famous art and culture, including many art galleries. Here you can go on the London Eye. It’s Europe’s tallest Ferris wheel and in 30 minutes you can see the whole of London from it.
Many tourists also go to the Science and Natural History Museums, which are located very near each other. These really interesting museums are free to enter and have something to offer everyone, from cars to rockets to dinosaurs.
At Madam Tussauds, you can see detailed waxworks of famous celebrities, historical figures and infamous criminals. This is a really popular tourist attraction, but a quick word of warning: if you don’t have the patience to wait for a long time in queues, it might not be a good use of your time. It seems like it’s always peak visiting time here!
