London is the capital of Great Britain, its political, economic and cultural centre. It’s one of the largest cities in the world. Its population is more than 8 million people. London is situated on the river Thames. It was founded more than two thousand years ago.

London is an ancient city. It appeared at the place where the Roman invaders decided to build a bridge over the Thames. There are four parts in London: West End, East End, the City and Westminster.

The City is the oldest part of London, its financial and business centre. There are many offices, companies and banks in this part of the capital.

London Big Ben   Also known as Big Ben, the officially named Elizabeth Tower was completed in 1858. A renowned landmark of London, it’s found next to the Houses of Parliament, which makes it just about the most important building in the area. Big Ben is an excellent timekeeper, which has rarely stopped. The name Big Ben actually refers not to the clock-tower itself, but to the thirteen ton bell hung within. The bell was named after the first commissioner of works, Sir Benjamin Hall.

London Tower Bridge Built between 1886 - 1894, Tower Bridge crosses the River Thames and is an iconic symbol of London. It takes its name from the closely located Tower of London. Not to be confused with London Bridge, the next bridge upstream.
