London 13

If I had a chance to go to London, I’d like to see not only the usual places of interest, but many other interesting things as well. Certainly everyone knows that the most famous sights of the capital of Great Britain are the Tower Bridge over the River Thames, Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Saint Paul’s Cathedral, The British Museum and Art Gallery.

It seems I know all these sights well, because we have been getting acquainted with them since the 5th form up to now. I think it will be enough for a one-day excursion to see all these sights with my own eyes.

I am sure to visit one of the numerous English pubs, the local beer halls, where over a glass of beer, the British like to spend their free time reading, talking, and discussing traditional matters, such as politics, sports and weather.

Or, I’ll try to be like a real Englishman visiting a house of a typical English family. I’d like to sit round the fireplace, which is traditional for every English household.

If I was lucky, I would attend a competition or tournament where traditional English sport games are played, such as rugby, lawn tennis, horse racing or cricket. I’d like to walk among the students of Cambridge or Oxford University on their campus, imagining that I am one of them.

I believe my impressions about London won’t be complete if I don’t visit Madam Tussad’s Museum in Baker Street. I’m looking forward to seeing their lifesize wax portraits of kings and queens, well – known writers, singers and even criminals.

During one of my evenings in London, I’d like to visit a disco club, watching the way English teenagers and young people spend their time, listening to their popular groups, making friends and what not.
