The Tower of London
Known as the Tower of London, her majesty’s Royal Palace and Fortress is located on the north bank of the River Thames in London. It was founded at the end of 1066. It was used as prison since at least 1100. This use has led to the phrase “send to the Tower”.
The London Eye is a Ferris wheel located next to river Thames in London. It is the tallest Ferris in the whole Europe in about 135 meters. It offers a breathtaking view of the city and maybe this is the reason why it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in UK. It consists of 32
capsules and each one of those can hold 25 people. The Ferris never stops rotating so the passengers have to get in and out while it is moving. Nevertheless, this is not considered to be a problem as the wheel moves really slowly.
Covent Garden is a district in London on the eastern fringes of the West End, between St. Martin's Lane
and Drury Lane. It is associated with the former fruit and vegetable market in the central square, now

and Seven Dials, while the south contains the central square with its street performers and most of the
elegant buildings, theatres and entertainment facilities, including the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane,
and the London Transport Museum.
The Big Ben is one of the most important historical monuments in London and thus the Great Britain .It is a popular chiming clock tower and the biggest of its type .Augustus Pugin was the English architect who designed the famous clock tower. However ‘’Big Ben’’is just a fake
name of the great bell which is the largest bell in the tower.
The Globe Theatre
The Globe Theatre is an Elizabethan theatre in Southwark, near
London. It was built in 1599. The Globe was a wooden polygonal structure open to the sky, which accommodated 3.000 people seated and standing. Shakespeare was
one of the six responsible “housekeepers” and it was at the Globe from 1599 until 1608 that most of his finest plays were first publicly performed. 14 years later it went up in flames during a performance
of “Henry the Eighth”, but the next year was rebuilt. Finally, it collapsed in 1644. A modern reconstruction of the Globe, named "Shakespeare's Globe", opened in 1997, 230m from the site of the original theatre.
