London - London's Principal Places of Interest



'London, the capital of the British Empire, is the largest city in the world. Ships bringing cargoes and passengers from all over the world dock in the Thames, and Tower bridge is opened several times a day to allow ships to pass. The City is the oldest part of London. Once a walled town, it occupies only a square mile of territory, but the most important business houses, the Bank of England, St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower of London and the Guildhall lie within its boundaries. In the city of Westminster are the Houses of Parliament, the Government Offices of Whitehall, the Prime Minister’s residence in Downing Street, Westminster Abbey and the royal palaces.
The West End is the fashionable and modern district of London, the evening resort of theatregoers and diners. In the daytime Regent Street, Oxford Street and Piccadilly are thronged with shoppers, and only a few steps away in Soho, London’s foreign quarter, are street markets for fruit, vegetables and even clothing.
A belt of parks and open spaces surround London’s central business area–Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Green Park, St. James’s Park and Regent’s Park. Nearby is Buckingham Palace, the royal residence in London and centre of the state functions and pageantry of the city.' [1]
