"The City of London is the historical centre of London and the centre of British banking and commerce. There is the Bank of England and the Royal Exchange. St.Paul´s Cathedral was built during the Norman times, but burnt down in 1666. The cathedral that replaced it, was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, England’s greatest architect, and completed in 1710. The cathedral is known for its Whispering Gallery : standing on this Gallery you can clearly hear what is whispered on the opposite side 107ft far from you. In the crypt of the cathedral Lord Nelson and Duke of Wellington are buried. London Bridge, build in 1209, was the only bridge across the Thames until the half of the 18th century. It was demolished in 1968 to make way for a new bridge that was completed in 1973.
Tower Bridge is another famous London bridge. It’s about 100 years old. It can be drawn up to allow large ships to get to the Pool, the oldest part of London Port.
The Tower of London was built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror as a demonstration of Norman power over England. At first it was a royal palace, then the state prison, the royal zoo and nowadays it’s a museum. In the White Tower, the oldest part of the fortress, there is a collection of armour and weapons, while the Wakefield Tower contains a strongly guarded room where the Crown Jewels are kept and displayed. The Tower is guarded by the Yeomen or Beefeaters in Tudor uniforms.
On the other side of the Thames there is the West End. Its main sights are the Houses of Parliament, built in the 19th century in the Gothic style on the site of the ancient Palace of Westminster. On the Clock Tower there is the famous “Big Ben”."
