1. My trip to London

Sofiya Andryushenko


I have dreamt to visit England for long time.
And first I have been the this summer. Today
I’d like to share impressions with you.


The airport, which is associated with Great Britain, is
called Heathrow. It’s the chief international and the
busiest airport of the country. It’s the best airport I
have seen in my life.


Then we met the typical English families and immersed into culture and customs of
English families.
The first impression of Englishmen are well-disciplined and it is probably no
exaggeration to say that they have the best manners in the world. They are old
polite they all know to how to behave in society. Beside they are never rude.


The London School of Commerce (LSC), established in
November 1999,is located in central London, next to the
River Thames, about a 5-minute walk from London Bridge
MRT Station. The school’s location is close to landmarks
such as Tower Bridge, Tower of London, the London Eye,
the Big Ben, the London Dungeon, Parliament House,
numerous parks and amusement parks. The LSC’s training
objective is to create opportunities for students in different
countries, to have access to an advanced education and to
update their communication and work skills.


London has many places of interest. One of them is
Buckingham Palace is the official residence of Queen
Elizabeth. It is located near Green Park. When the Queen is
in the residence , the Royal Standard flies over Buckingham
There are 775 rooms where members of the Royal family and
their servants live. There are also rooms for guests. There
are offices , on-site post and even swimming pool in the


Windsor Castle is the oldest and largest
occupied castle in the world.
Founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th
century, it has since been the home of 39
monarchs. Today the Queen spends most of
her private weekends at the Castle.


Madam Tussaud’s is the most popular and talked about wax
museum in the world. There are wax models of the famous
and infamous, both living and dead, from every walk of life.
The museum is situated in Marylebone Road, not far from the
street which is famous as the home of the first great
detective in fiction, Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes.


Greenwich is one of the most exciting impressions it
is the southernmost city in the state, the
westernmost town in New England. Greenwich
was founded in 1640.Greenwich is famous for
being the starting point of zerolongitude and time
zones of the globe. The Prime Meridian is
historically linked to the Greenwich Observatory.
A mong the Sightseeings of the city, there is also
the RoyalGreenwich Observatory, through which
passes a zero or Greenwich meridian, for
undedby Charles 2 in 1674. Now the buildings of
the old Observatory is a museum of astronomical
and navigational devices. The building of the
observatory is located in Greenwich Park.


I should say I feel in love with this city once I saw it. If
I get a chance I will visit this country again.
