Let's Travel to London-English Lesson

Updated: Mar 31

London is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, with its rich history, iconic landmarks, and vibrant culture. In this lesson, we will explore useful vocabulary and phrases that will help you navigate the city, communicate with locals, and make the most of your trip to London.

Big Ben

When completed in 1859, its clock was the largest and most accurate four-faced striking and chiming clock in the world. All four nations of the UK are represented on the tower on shields featuring a rose for England, thistle for Scotland, shamrock for Ireland, and leek for Wales. On 31 May 2009, celebrations were held to mark the tower's 150th anniversary.

Tower Bridge-London

Tower Bridge has become a recognisable London landmark. It is sometimes confused with London Bridge. It is a combination of a suspension bridge and a bascule, which is a bridge that can open to let boats/ships pass through underneath the bridge.

The Crown Jewels

The Crown Jewels are often used for the coronation of a monarch and a few other ceremonial occasions. A monarch may often be shown wearing them in portraits, as they symbolize the power and continuity of the monarchy. Additions to them may be made, but since medieval times the existing items are typically passed down unchanged as they symbolize the continuity of the monarchy.

The London Eye

The London Eye, or the Millennium Wheel, is a cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. It is Europe's tallest cantilevered observation wheel, and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over three million visitors annually.

Buckingham Palace

Buckingham Palace is a London royal residence and the administrative headquarters of the monarch of the United Kingdom. Located in the City of Westminster, the palace is often at the centre of state occasions and royal hospitality. It has been a focal point for the British people at times of national rejoicing and mourning.

Red Telephone Box

The red telephone box is a familiar sight on the streets of the United Kingdom.

The colour red was chosen to make them easy to spot.

The red phone box is often seen as a British cultural icon throughout the world. The fascias of the kiosks were emblazoned with a prominent crown, representing the British government.

Many of the phone box designs are protected by trade mark registrations and copyright, held by British Telecommunications plc.
