We'll begin our tour in London, which is the capital of the United Kingdom and its largest city. This is the center of England's culture and commerce and it's also one of the world's most exciting cities. The houses of Parliament are the heart of the British democracy. This is where the debates are held to set Britain's law. Big Ben is a famous clock in the tower above the Houses of Parliament. Across the street is Westminster Abbey, where the monarchs of England are crowned. Nearby is a statue of Churchill the Prime Minister who led Britian during World War II. At Trafalgar Square, there's a monument to Lord Nelson's victory against the French in 1805. Nearby is the National Gallery, which offers stunning collections of Western Art including works from Leonardo da Vinci and Monet. At Piccadily Circus you catch a bus, the subway also known as the tube, or train to explore the city. It's busy here day or night, because of the wide range of activities in this area including shopping, cafes, restaurants and theaters.

The Tower of London served as a castle and later as a prison. St Paul's Cathedral is one of the most famous churches in London. It replaced another one, which was destroyed by the great fire of London.

We'll see special events such as horse drawn cannons at the Horse Guards Building. The Household Division has guarded British Royalty and the Palaces since the 17th century. It has 7 regiments - the Life Guards the Blues and Royals the Grenadier Coldstream Scots Irish and Welsh.

Flowers blossem around Buckingham Palace. This has been the London home of British royalty since 1837 when Queen Victoria ascended the throne. During her reign, Britain literally ruled the world, and this majestic palace is fit for a king or queen.

One of the best ways to get a panoramic view of the London is to take a ride on the British Airways London Eye. This Ferris wheel is stunning. At night you almost feel like you are on a space ship, which slowly floats above the city. On a clear sunny day you can see for 25 miles.

London has some great parks. St. James Park used to be private, but now it's open to the public. Its lake and tree lined paths were designed in the nineteenth century. Throughout the parks you'll find a wide range of wildlife including squirrels, ducks, pelicans and geese.

Make sure you join everyone else for afternoon tea with a wide range of teas and tasty scones, served with jam and clotted cream. Also try fish and chips - one of Britain's most famous dishes.

Oxford is the oldest university in Britain and one the best schools in the world. It has over 30 colleges, the largest of which is Christ Church. A deacon here was inspired to create Alice in Wonderland, the adventures of a young girl in an imaginary world. He used this story to entertain the Dean's boy and girl and other children.

William Shakespeare was the world's greatest playwright and Stratford upon Avon was his hometown. At the Royal Shakespeare Theater you can see excellent performances of his Plays, famous tragedies such as Romeo and Juliet, and Hamlet. Or see his comedies such as The Merchant of Venice.
