Have you been to London? Did you like it? What do you know - or think - about London?




Hello British council team,
I kanwalpreet, i am so glad to participate to do training for my english learning skills. I love this topic. I have never been known this much about London.

Hello everybody!
I've been in London two years ago for two weeks. I love it! People was so nice and there were many things to see. There are many parks, museums. So lovely. I was near Kensington Park so I use to walk around there and in Hyde Park too. I visited tower Bridge and saw that Buckingham Palace and Big Ben too. St Paul's Cathedral, Natural History museum, Victoria and Albert museum... I loved all of them. Oh, and as a Beatles' fan, I cross the Abbey Road like the album. Unfortunately I haven't been in Liverpool and other places like Bath, Stone henge, Windsor Castle. I think I'll come back as soon as possible ❤️
Kind regards

I never travel to London. I had saw London in pamphlet tourist companies, but i loved knowing really it. The citizens of London are knowing for happen all things politely. In the shop, in the cafe and other places where your education is necessary. The Big Ben is the most famous simbols of the city, but i have heard wonderful of the Buckingham and wembley stadium. the history of the famous city is active im my mind sweet whisper of know it.

I have never been to London but my friends who have been to London love it so much, and I would like to explore it very much as soon as possible.

Kind regards

I went to London one year ago and I think it's an amazing city. I did sightseeing all day and I visited all main places of London, I guess. I went to London eye, Big Ben, Bridge Tower, Natural History Museum. It was a little difficult to me going on the underground, it got me confused hehe. I loved being in London, unfortunately I didn't have much time to do other things like visit some castle and the real life in the countryside. I ate fish and chips, they're great! I hope I can travel there as soon as I can.

I really love and when I have always wanted to visit London one day. I will eat British food and enjoy visiting beautiful places. And of course, I also want to see Big Ben towel too. It's very beautiful and one of wonders of the world.

Hello everyone. So, I don't understand one things, the first tower was destroyed in 1834, and tit took 36 years to build the new one, and finished in 1859, but 1834 + 36 = 1870 then what does it mean when you say "finished in 1859"???

Hello Edyanglo,

I'm sorry, I couldn't find anywhere in the podcast where they talked about the tower being destroyed in 1834. Could you please tell me at what time in the audio they mentioned this?

Or you might find the answer to your problem in the Wikipedia.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team
