“Ah London. I just don’t know where to start telling you about my hometown of London. If you ask me, it’s just the centre of the world. It simply is. However you look at it. Geographically, culturally or historically. It was once a capital of a vast empire where the sun never set. It lies on a zero meridian. So whichever way you go, east or west, you simply need a full circle to come back to us. We have Wimbledon if you’re a tennis fan. And if you ask any of them, this is the most important tennis tournament in the world and the only one staged by a private club! Most respected and powerful Royal Family with Queen Elizabeth II rules from Buckingham Palace – even if she prefers nearby Windsor Castle to call her family home. Our West End shows can rival the Broadway productions in quality and rich history. You can also climb up the Shard, the tallest building in Europe that offered most breath taking views of London skyline. Sitting in the front seat on the upper deck of the famous red double deckers and cruise the London streets is a must do. And not to mention our Oxford and Cambridge universities where lost of the most brightest minds of the world got their education.
I bet you can picture any of these images in your mind. But these are just some of the most famous things you’ve all heard of, that London has to offer. But there are so many other little less known things about my city that once you see you instantly fall in love with.
Have you ever heard about little St. Dunstan on the Hill church that was destroyed in the Second World War but the walls still stands and it was turned into one of the most beautiful little parks in London? Do you know where is the full life-size replica of Sir Frances Drake’s ship that he once explored the world in the name of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth I? Did you know that at the Globe, an original theatre where Shakespeare performed his plays still regularly you can still see original Shakespearean work? And speaking of Globe, that is the only building in the city that is to this day allowed to have a straw roof due to safety restrictions and fire regulation rules. Ever heard of Pocahontas? She was a real person and visited the King of England to tell him of her people. She got married here and when she left London to return to America, she fall ill and died. She was buried in Gravesend and you can visit her grave. Did you know that Richmond Park is so huge that even today there is a horde of wild deer living there? And speaking of the wild animals, did you know that the Queen owns every single Swan living in United Kingdom? And if you hurt one, she can have you beheaded! Yep, she can still exercise her famous “off with his head” orders and and in accordance to the law, you’ll loose your head. But no need to worry, you’re safe to visit, she never practiced that power of hers, just be nice to the animals 😉
So come on, come and visit and let me show you around. You won’t be disappointed.”
