the thames river
The longest river
The river gives its name to several administrative / political names: The Thames Valley , a region of England centred around the river between Oxford and West London , the Thames Gateway , the area centred around the tidal Thames, and the Thames Estuary to the east of London.
Thames is a major river flowing through southern England . While best known because its lower reaches flow through central London , the river flows through several other towns and cities, including Oxford , Reading and Windsor .
Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in central London , England and one of the Royal Parks of London , famous for its Speakers' Corner .
The park is divided in two by the Serpentine . The park is contiguous with Kensington Gardens ; although often still assumed to be part of Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens has been technically separate since 1728, when Queen Caroline made a division between the two. Hyde Park is 142 hectares (350 acres) and Kensington Gardens is 111 hectares (275 acres giving an overall area of 253 hectares (625 acres), making the combined area larger than the Principality of Monaco (196 hectares or 484 acres), but smaller than New York City 's Central Park (341 hectares or 843 acres). To the southeast (but outside of the park) is Hyde Park Corner . Although, during daylight, the two parks merge seamlessly into each other, Kensington Gardens closes at dusk but Hyde Park remains open throughout the year from 5 am until midnight.
The park was the site of The Great Exhibition of 1851, for which the Crystal Palace was designed by Joseph Paxton .
The park has become a traditional location for mass demonstrations. The Chartists , the Reform League , the Suffragettes and the Stop The War Coalition have all held protests in the park. Many protestors on the Liberty and Livelihood March in 2002 started their march from Hyde Park.
The London Underground is a rapid transit system serving a large part of Greater London and neighbouring areas of Essex , Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire in the UK. The first section opened in 1863, and was the first underground railway system in the world, and, starting in 1890, it was also the first to operate electric trains. Despite the name, about 55% of the network is above ground. It is usually referred to officially as the Underground and colloquially as the Tube , although the latter term originally applied only to the deep-level bored lines, to distinguish them from the sub-surface "cut and cover" lines that were built first. More recently this distinction has been lost sight of and the whole system is now referred to as "the Tube", even in recent years by its operator in official publicity.
English people traditionally speak the English language , a member of the West Germanic language family . The modern English language evolved from Old English , with lexical influence from Norman-French, Latin, and Old Norse. Cornish , a Celtic language originating in Cornwall , is currently spoken by about 3,500 people. Historically, another Brythonic Celtic language, Cumbric , was spoken in Cumbria in North West England , but it died out in the 11th century although traces of it can still be found in the Cumbrian dialect. Because of the 19th century geopolitical dominance of the British Empire and the post-World War II hegemony of the United States , English has become the international language of business, science, communications, aviation, and diplomacy
The places in the world where the persons speak English
English art was dominated by imported artists throughout much of the Renaissance , but in the eighteenth century a native tradition became much admired. It is often considered to be typified by landscape painting , such as the work of J.M.W. Turner and John Constable . Portraitists like Thomas Gainsborough , Joshua Reynolds and William Hogarth are also significant. Hogarth also developed a distinctive style of satirical painting.
