To the left of us you can see the National Gallery. It has got a fine collection of European paintings.
Now we are coming to Piccadilly Circus. It is the meeting point of six streets. It is famous for its brightly lit neon advertisements an night.
We've just passed Piccadilly Circus and now we are making our way to Buckingham Palace. Look right. We are passing Hyde Park.
Hyde Park has got a lake in the middle called the Serpentine, and you can take a boat out on the water.
It is a good place to get away from the crowds and the noise of the city.
You can listen to the speakers at Speaker's Corner near Marble Arch.
People from all over the world come and speak here. You can ask a speaker some difficult questions if you like. Or you can stand on a box and speak to some of the listeners!
Now we are at Buckingham Palace. It is the London home of the Qur.cu. When the flag is flying on the top she is at home. Look, they are changing the Guard. It happens every day at 11. 30 a. m.
We have just turned left and you can see St. James' Park. It is one of the royal parks.
Here you can see pelicans and ducks.
In front of you you can see the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben.
The Houses of Parliament is the seat of British government. It is a very large Gothic building. It stands on the left bank of the river Thames and is 984 ft(280 m) in length.
There is only one building there, but it is called the Houses because it is divided into two Chambers — the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
Big Ben is the name of the huge clock on the Clock Tower of the Houses of Parliament.
The Clock is 313 ft high and 41 ft square.
In a moment you will see Westminster Abbey. It's a royal church. Here you can see the tombs of many British kings and queens and famous people. Now we are crossing Tower Bridge over the river Thames.
From here you can see the Tower of London. It was a fortress, a royal palace and later a prison. It is a museum now.
There are a lot of interesting collections in the Tower of London. The ravens are another famous sight. The legend says that without them the Tower will fall. The Raven Master is the person who gives them food.
And now we are making our way to the famous St. Paul's Cathedral.
It is the greatest work of the architect sir Christopher Wren.
Тема. Життя суспільства. Люди
We are now going along Fleet Street to the Strand. On the right you'll see Covent Garden. It was a big fruit and vegetable market. It is now tourists' shopping Centre with cafes and restaurants. We'll stop here so that you can go shopping.
Our tour has finished.
I hope very much that you have enjoyed this tour of London. Thankyouandgoodbye.
