Big Ben. The Houses of Parliament is a very large building which stands near the Thames. There are two tall towers at the corners of the building and one of them is the Clock Tower. The Clock Tower was built in 1858. The clock has four faces and a very big loud bell. The man in charge of the building was Sir Benjamin Hall. This man was very tall, and the workers called him Big Ben. So people called the bell Big Ben too.
The Tower of London. The Tower of London is nine hundred years old. It stands on the Thames. The English kings lived in the Tower. Then it was a prison where many people died. Black ravens live in the garden of the Tower. Now the Tower is a museum. The walls of the Tower are five meters thick. In the museum you can see many old guns. At 10 o’clock every evening the guards lock the big doors of the Tower for the night.
Buckingham Palace. Buckingham Palace is in the centre of London. The Palace is one of the homes of The Royal family. It is the place where the Queen meets important visitors such as kings, queens or presidents from other countries.
Buckingham Palace is like a small village. There is a police station, a hospital, a bar, two sports clubs, a disco, a cinema and a swimming pool. There are six hundred rooms and three miles of red carpet. About seven hundred people work there.
Trafalgar Square. Trafalgar Square is in the centre of London. Some people say it is the most beautiful place in London. In the middle of the square stands a tall column. It is a monument to Admiral Nelson. Four bronze lions look at the square from the monument. There are two beautiful fountains in the square. They are in front of the National Gallery which is one of the best picture galleries in the world.
