THE TOWER OF LONDON is a very old building- nine hundred years old! In the early days of England the English kings lived in the Tower. Then it was a prison where many people died. It has a long and cruel history. It is not just one building. The tall building is the White Tower, the oldest part of the Tower of London. The Bloody Tower is near the river. It has a history of blood- the blood of men, women and even children. Now the Tower of London is a museum and many tourists from other countries come to see it.

TOWER BRIDGE was opened in 1894. It takes his name from the Tower of London. The hydraulic mechanism can raise and lower the bridge in about one and half minutes.

ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL. The city’s greatest monument, St Paul’s Cathedral was built by Christopher Wren between 1675 and 1710. The Cathedral is second in size only to St. Peter’s in Rome. Between the two west towers rises the famous dome. It is 365 feet high. Christopher Wren died before the completion. He is buried there.

BUCKINGHAM PALACE is the official residents of Her Majesty the Queen and her family. It isn’t open to the public. It has 600 hundred rooms, a swimming pool, a cinema, a garden, which is like a private park. In summer the Queen gives three garden parties for about 9000 guests. Palace ceremony of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace is a great tourist’s attraction. It takes place at 11 a.m. and lasts half an hour.

THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT. The famous clock Big Ben stands near the Houses of Parliament. The country’s leaders speak in the Houses of parliament. The man and women there are the voice of the British people. The houses of parliament stand beside the river Thames. You can go on a boat from Westminster and see London from the river.

BIG BEN. It is a big bell. It weighs 13 720 kilograms.The clock has four faces and five big bells. The biggest bell is known as Big Ben. The bell is named after Sir Benjamin Hall; the first commissioner (уполномочен-ный) of works when the Houses of Parliament were rebuilt (in 1850).He was a tall men, whose nickname was Big Ben.
