Castles in London, England.
Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament
Londonís streets may not exactly be paved with gold, but they are rich in history, having seen everything from the Great Fire of London in 1666 to the Great Exhibition in 1851. Today, you canít fail to stumble upon the legacy of Londonís past whether youíre gazing up at the world famous Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament in the centre of this great city or visiting Hogarthís house on the outskirts of west London
The architectural ingredients that go to make up the capital are quite a visual feast, ranging from the elegant Georgian squares and terraces of Bloomsbury and Mayfair to the rather more austere Victorian wharves and warehouses of Londonís East End.
But perhaps one of Londonís greatest charms lies in the fact that even relatively mundane artifacts such as street signs and pillar boxes reveal something interesting about Londonís past.
London is really no more than a collection of villages that have spilled over into one another. But thatís not to say that each hasnít retained its own distinct character, nor does it mean that many Londonís Ďvillagesí are not still clearly visible today.
