Hello from London! Yes, I packed my bags over two weeks ago and decided to follow Steph in United Kingdom for the holidays. Only a couple of closests friends and family members knew about my trip and the news that I’m in England may have come to be a surprise for the rest of my friends. You may have missed me for the past two weeks but here are a couple of places that I recommend when you visit London.
First of my list is London’s Underground. I know it’s weird but you would get to know London more with it’s efficient train system. By the way, the London Underground is a public rapid transit system serving Metro London and its neighboring counties for over 150 years now.
Second, The London Eye. The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the southbank of the River Thames in London. It has 32 sealed and air-conditioned ovoidal capsules for passengers to see the London sky. This iconic London structure has been an attraction to many tourists around the globe.
Next is The Big Ben. It’s a 16-storey Gothic clock tower and UK national symbol, which houses the UK parliament. The Elizabeth Tower, home to the Big Ben bell, is undergoing crucial conservation work which will last for four years. Big Ben’s regular bongs will be heard again on 2021. Though its under renovation, tourists still flock Big Ben.
Lastly, the Westminster Abbey which is just around the Big Ben. It’s formally called the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster. It’s a large, Gothic abbey church in the City of Westminster within London. It’s where the coronation and burials of the Royal Family takes place. If you can recall the Queen Mother’s funeral service took place at Westminster Abbey in 2002.
You can get to these 3 major tourist attractions in central London using the bullet trains of the Underground. You can just take a 20-minute walk from the London Eye via the Westminster Bridge to go to The Big Ben and the Westminster Abbey.
After a day of touring London, sit down and have a cup of tea perhaps.
See you next week, UrbanLifers! Happy Holidays from United Kingdom!
