  • Thank for great presentation
    We're taking the family to see Spamalot in London tomorrow and about the only type of food that everyone agrees on is Indian or similar.
    Can anyone suggest a decent restaurant that is not too posh or pricey? We're taking teenagers so good sized portions and value for money is our main aim but I'd like the food to be good too. Help.

London

  1. 1. London and its sights
  2. 2. View of Westminster in 1647. Westminster Abbey is lacking its distinctive twin towers which were added by Hawksmoor in 1734 (completed in 1745 after his death). Several English and British monarchs are buried in Westminster Abbey. People who have served the Abbey in an official capacity be buried here.
  3. 3. St Paul's Cathedral the building survived the second great fire of London in 1940, caused by a blitz of incendiary bombs during World War II It celebrated its 300th anniversary in 1997. The present building, designed by Christopher Wren, replaced an earlier Norman building, which was destroyed by fire in 1666. The Cathedral has hosted many important national events
  4. 4. The Royal Opera House is one of the great lyric theatres. During its accomplished history the Royal Opera House has played host to some of the finest ballet companies, opera companies, and orchestras in the world.
  5. 5. London's Guildhall art gallery. Although the original building was burned down in an air raid in 1941. The Guildhall still houses many famous works of art. The new gallery displays about two hundred and fifty works at a time, and places great emphasis on temporary collections and the presentation of rare pictures usually kept in storage.
  6. 6. The Tate Modern art gallery is housed in the former Bankside power station. The Tate Modern houses one of the most important collections of modern art in the world. A major tourist attraction, the gallery draws millions of visitors each year.
  7. 7. The White Tower, the oldest part of the Tower of London, which is spread on the banks of the Thames River. This tower was constructed in 1078, by the followers of William the Conqueror, and the remainder of the fortress was built around it by succeeding monarchs.
  8. 8. The Oxo Wharf Tower is situated on the London's South Bank. Originally built in 1928, the tower had become derelict by the early 1970s, but was not demolished. Instead, it has been redeveloped and revitalized with a restaurant, bars, and shops.
  9. 9. To conclude with, I want to say that London is a diverse city, and it is not only the city of Tate Gallery, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace but also a city of such not very famous but still attractive to visit places as Oxo Wharf Tower, London's Guildhall art gallery and Canary Wharf. In spite of the fact that the city draws a lot of tourists it still retains its political, historical and religious significance.
