Besides being the official London residence of The Queen, Buckingham Palace is also the busy administrative headquarters of the monarchy and has probably the most famous and easily recognisable faade of any building in the world.

The Palace is a working building and the centrepiece of Britain's constitutional monarchy. It houses the offices of those who support the day-to-day activities and duties of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and their immediate family. The Palace is also the venue for great Royal ceremonies, State Visits and Investitures, all of which are organised by the Royal Household.

The Changing of the Guard takes place in the forecourt of Buckingham Palace at 11.30 every day in summer, every other day in winter, and lasts about 45 minutes. Big Ben is one of London's best-known landmarks, and looks most spectacular at night when the clock faces are illuminated. You even know when parliament is in session, because a light shines above the clock face.

The four dials of the clock are 23 feet square, the minute hand is 14 feet long and the figures are 2 feet high.. The name Big Ben actually refers not to the clock-tower itself , but to the thirteen ton bell hung within. The bell was named after the first commissioner of works, Sir Benjamin Hall.
The Houses of Parliament, otherwise known as The Palace of Westminster, stands on the site where Edward the Confessor had the original palace built in the first half of the eleventh century. In 1547 the royal residence was moved to Whitehall Palace, but the Lords continued to meet at Westminster, while the commons met in St. Stephen’s Chapel. Ever since these early times, the Palace of Westminster has been home to the English Parliament. Tower of London –it is no wonder that the Tower of London is the nation historic visitor attraction.This nation fortress was founded by William Conqueror and almost 1000 years British history have been played out within the walls.It was here that Anne Boleyn was executed,Guy Fawkes iterrogated,Richard II and Elizabeth I incarcerated and the „princes in the tower” disappeared without trace. Cathedral dedicated to St Paul is overlooing the City of London,it’s a constant reminder to this great commercial centre of the importance of the spiritual side of life.

The current Cathedral – was designed by the court architect Sir Christopher Wren and built between 1675 and 1710 after its predecessor was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. Its architectural and artistic importance reflect the determination of the five monarchs who oversaw its building that London’s leading church should be as beautiful and imposing as their private palaces. The British Museum.It holds in trust for the nation and the world a collection of art and antiquities from ancient and living cultures. Housed in one of Britain's architectural landmarks, the collection is one of the finest in existence, spanning two million years of human history. Access to the collections is free. The British Museum was founded in 1753 to promote universal understanding through the arts, natural history and science in a public museum. Since its foundation, the British Museum has been guided by three important principles: that the collections are held in perpetuity in their entirety; that they are widely available to all who seek to enjoy and learn from them and that they are curated by full-time specialists

praca dobrze napisana ale zbyt mało uwagi poświęcone jest poszczególnym miejscom, budynkom. Po drugie przez nieodpowiedni podział trestu pracę czyta się bardzo ciężko poniważ nazwy miejsc(budynków) prawie się pokrywają i nie można szybko oddzielić informacjii dotyczących jednego budynku od drugiego. Ale ogólnie praca jest napisana przystępnym językiem :)
