Hello, ladies and gentlemen. We welcome you to London. London is one of the largest cities in the world. About seven million people live here. London is more than two thousand years old. London’s most famous sights are Tower Bridge, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square and St. Paul’s Cathedral. You’ll see all these places and much more of London from our red double-decker.
P1. We start from Trafalgar Square. On the column in the centre there is a statue of Admiral Nelson who defeated the French at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. To the left of us you can see the National Gallery. It has a fine collection of European paintings.
P2. Now we are coming to Piccadilly Circus . It is the meeting point of six streets.
We’ve just passed Piccadilly Circus and now we are making our way to Buckingham Palace. Look right. We are passing Hyde park. In the park anyone can stand up and say what they want. It is a very democratic park.
P3. Now we are at the Buckingham Palace. It is the London home of the Queen. When the flag is flying on the top she is at home. Look, they are changing the Guard. It happens every day at 11.30 a .m.
P4. We have just turned left and you can see St .James’s park. It is one of the royal parks.
Here you can see pelicans and ducks. There are a lot of parks and gardens in London. In Regent’s park there is the London Zoo. It is one of the biggest zoos in the world.
In front of you you can see the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. The Houses of Parliament is the seat of the British government. Big Ben is one of the oldest clocks in the world.
P5. In a moment you will see a royal church. Here you can see the tombs of many British kings and queens and other famous people and the beautiful Henry 7 Chapel. Now we are crossing Tower bridge over the river Thames. From here you can see the Tower of London. It was a fortress, a royal palace and later a prison. It is a museum now. There are a lot of interesting collections in the Tower of London. The ravens are another famous sight. The legend says that without them the Tower will fall. The raven Master is the person who gives them the food. Earlier in our tour we saw a famous royal church, Westminster Abbey. We are now making our tour to the second famous church, St. Paul’s Cathedral. It is the greatest work of the architect Sir Christopher Wren.
P6. We are now going along Fleet Street to the Strand. On the right you’ll see Covent Garden. It was a big fruit and vegetable market. It is now a tourist shopping centre with cafes and restaurants. We’ll stop here so that you can go shopping. Our tour has finished. I hope very much that you have enjoyed this tour of London. Thank you and goodbye.
