If you want to know more about the local history, then in moving here you have come to the right place. Living in this city is a cornucopia filled with historical and cultural gems, and just as soon as you are settled into your new rental you’ll have to get out an explore this magnificent city. London is characterized by its churches, parks, flats, and palaces and the many people who visit the city seek out those attractions. The city’s Roman legacy is reflected in the ground at the London Wall as well as the faces of every church which are imprinted.  With the aide memoire of the time during which London was attacked by the Germans during World War II, referred to as the London Blitz. The city wears every period of its long history for the present to see; to walk from east to west is to watch the city unfold through time.

 

Christopher Wren’s work continues to marvel all around the City of London. Holborn’s Fleet St. was long associated with the press and the Royal Courts. Down in Westminster, you will hold court with the regents, royals, and ruffians who run this fair capital, and up in Bloomsbury you’ll mingle with the students and youth who hold the future in their eager grasp.

 

Unlike the museums, sights tend to be expensive. There is no reason to spend £30 on tourist trips to the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the London Eye, only to be left wondering what to do for the rest of your day with just pocket change to spare. Be your own tour guide. From avant-garde architecture in Islington to the urban wilderness of Hampstead Heath, the best of the sights are often those seen via excursions on foot. No matter what path you choose, whether you’re strolling down small cobblestone streets or briskly marching down a modern thoroughfare, your exploration will be rewarded. There is no wrong turn.

 

This is a place to be experienced, not toured. you need to be a part of the fabric of life in order to really experience this fascinating city.
