Although Britain is no longer the predominant world power, London retains its prominent position, recognized as a centre of arts such as theatre and pop music, and finance.

Overview

London today is one of the greatest cities in the world, as it was one hundred years ago, capital of the world’s first industrialised nation and hub of the British Empire, the largest the world has ever seen. Although Britain is no longer the predominant world power, London retains its prominent position, recognized as a centre of arts such as theatre and pop music, and finance. The ‘City of London’, a commercial centre since Roman times, is one of the world’s three major financial powerhouses. Landmarks like Big Ben, Tower Bridge, and Buckingham Palace are familiar to millions. It is a city rich in history, which everyone wants to see at least once in a lifetime, though one visit barely skims the surface of its 2000-year history.

Read an Excerpt

The story of the Thames is the story of London. Think of the Tower of London, the City, the Palace of Westminister--all built on the river. From Hampton Court, Henry VIII's palace southwest of London, to the high-tech Thames Barrier at Woolwich in the east, the Thames twists and turns for 48km past parks and houses, offices and pubs, and beneath a dozen or more bridges. Many have been renovated over the last decade, their designs highlighted with new coats of paint. When legs are weary of walking, hop on to what the Londoners still call a 'pleasure boat', sit back, and enjoy the unfolding of the London scene.
