Just a few years ago visiting England seemed to be unrealizable – castles in the air. But times are changing for the best! In spring 2010 my dream came true. I made an exciting tour to London.
We travelled by air. Our plane took off at Domodedovo Airport and landed at Heathrow Airport four hours later. My friends and I stayed at "Majestic” Hotel situated not far from Royal Albert Hall and Albert Memorial in Kensington Gardens.
I was happy to see the places I have read and told my students about for my whole life. Just imagine how many famous sights we have seen and how many world-known museums visited in and around London within our week trip: the City of London, the Houses of Parliament with Big Ben, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the British Museum, the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, the Thames with London Bridge and Tower Bridge, London Eye, the Tower of London, Stonehenge and the town of Salisbury, Hampton Court Palace owned by Henry VIII, Royal Windsor Palace, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, the town of Greenwich with the Royal Observatory.
My heart was sinking while I was walking along London streets, talking to Londeners, having lunch in the pubs. I wish you had an opportunity to travel to this wonderful country some time.
I enjoyed taking lots of pictures in London. You can see some of them in this article and 400 more photos - here.
