London, England



London has been in existence for more than 2000 years with early settlements dating from AD 43. It
has at numerous times been ruled by the Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, and now the long line of
British monarchs. London is the seat of power in the United Kingdom, and also the financial and
cultural center of the island. It is a city with four World Heritage Sites within its limits and one
of the fashion capitals of the world. Such is the mix and diversity of this city.

Some of the most important places to see are the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey, St.
Paul's Cathedral, Kew Gardens, Buckingham Palace and the many parks within the city. The Thames
flows through it and the banks of this river offer some of the most beautiful views and walks there
is. Madame Tussauds is worth a visit just to learn about London, its role in history and the
celebrities that have shaped it.

Is London the greatest city in the world? Sure there is New York with its skyscrapers and modern
architecture but does it have London's history? To me London is more comparable with Istanbul,
though grander in all ways. It has the history of a 1000 years and the modern outlook of the the
21st century. Neither gets in each other's way and this is the true charm of the city.
