London is the capital of Great Britain, its political, economic

and commercial centre. It is one of the largest cities in the

world (together with Tokyo and New York) and the largest city in



The city is very old. It has more then 20 centuries old history.

Once, London was a small Roman town on the north bank of the Thames, but

slowly it grew into one of the world’s major cities with population of

about 8 million. Fewer people live in the centre now, but the suburbs

are still growing.


Traditionally London is divided into several parts: the City,

Westminster, the West End and the East End. They are very

different from each other.


The city is the oldest part of London, it's financial and

business centre. Numerous banks, offices and firms are

concentrated here including the Bank of England, the Stock Exchange

and the Old Bailey. Few people live in the City but over a million

come to work here. Two masterpieces are situated within the City:

St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London. St. Paul's

Cathedral was built in the 17th century by Christopher Wren. The

Tower of London was built in the 11th century. It was used as a

fortress, a palace and a prison. Now it's a museum.


Westminster is the aristocratic official part of London. It

includes Buckingham Palace where the Queen lives and the Houses of

Parliament stretching for nearly 1000 feet along the north bank of

the Thames. The Clock Tower of the Houses of Parliament is famous

for its big hour bell, known as "Big Ben".


Westminster Abbey is the place where coronation of nearly all kings

and queens has taken place. Many of them are buried here as

well as some other famous people of the country (G. Chaucer,

Tennyson, Newton, Ch. Dickens, T. Hardy, R. Kipling, etc.).


The West End is the richest and most beautiful part of London.

It is a symbol of wealth and luxury. The best hotels,

restaurants, shops, clubs, parkland houses are situated there.

English aristocracy lives in this region. One of the busiest

streets in the West End is Oxford street. There are many various

shops in it which attract — customers from different countries of

the world.


By the day the whole of London is busy. At night, the offices are quiet

and empty, but the West End stays alive, because this is where Londoners

come to enjoy themselves. There are two opera houses here, several

concert halls and many theatres, as well as cinemas, and in nearby Soho

the pubs, restaurants and night-clubs are busy half the night.


Trafalgar Square is the geographical centre of London. It was

named in the memory of Admiral Nelson's victory at the battle of

Trafalgar in 1805. The tall Nelson's Column stands in the middle

of the square.


Opposite the Nelson’s monument is the National Gallery and the

National Portrait Gallery. They contain the finest art
