First of all I would like to show them the Tower. Because it is one of the most ancient buildings of London. It was founded in the 11th century by William the Conqueror. But each monarch left some kind of personal mark on it. For many centuries the Tower was a fortress, a palace, a prison and royal treasury. It is now a museum of arms and armour, and, as one of the strongest fortresses in Britain, it has the Crown Jewels. The grey stones of the Tower could tell terrible stories of violence and injustice.
Secondly, I would like to show them Westminster Abby. It took its name from its position five kilometers west of London’s center. From Norman times British monarchs have been crowned there and since the 13th century they have been buried there. Many other famous people are also buried in Westminster Abby including statesmen, musicians and writers. In Poet’s Corner can be found statues and tombs of poets such as T. S. Eliot.
And then I would like to show them the Piccadily circus which is the center of night life in the West End of London. It is usually top of everyone’s list of things to see in London, because it is so well known. It is actually quite small, and most people are rather disappointed when they see it for the first time because they imagined it would be much bigger.
