Welcome to this short tour (观光) of London. In this square we are standing in the middle of London. Opposite is the National Gallery, a museum with lots of famous paintings. Go along the red street to Buckingham Palace. The queen (皇后) lives here.
Turn left and go to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Opposite you can see the London Eye. It takes you 135 meters above the River Thames. You can see most of London on a clear day.
When you are tired, the best way to see London is by boat. You can get the boat near Big Ben. When you go along the river, the London Eye is on your right, near the Railway Bridge.
Get off the boat at Tower Bridge (塔桥). Then you can see the Tower of London next to the bridge. The Tower of London is the city’s oldest palace. It is nine hundred years old.
Take the boat back along the river. Get off the boat and go past the station and walk along the street. Opposite is the old fruit and vegetable market. They don’t sell fruit and vegetables now. There are many shops and restaurants, and lots of street musicians (音乐家). Turn left into King’s Street, and go past the church (教堂). You’re now back where you started, at the square.
