On my first visit in August of 99 I ventured off on my own and wound up exiting the South Kensington Tube station. I strolled down Brompton Road which was busy with people walking from shop to shop, restaurants, cafes and news stands speaking any number of languages as they strolled by. It felt like such a cosmopolitan cool place to be.
Tower 4 - the Royal Armor
from princely little armor to King Daddy's big, shiny armor...I guess what left the most lasting impression of my was the sizes of the armor.
Must have been rough if you gained weight between battles and tournaments!
Tree in the city
London has the busiest high street in the world. Apart of seeing parks and garden you'll be suprise to see a tall giant tree still survive surrounded with tall skyscrapers.
I think thats beautiful about London city
It's your round!
When you are in a pub with a group in the UK, the usual thing to do is to buy rounds. Rather then each person buying his or her own drink, someone buys a round for the whole group and when all drinks are finished, it's the turn of another person to buy the round. At the end of the evening, if all goes well, each person has bought a round for everybody else and in terms of money spent it comes out as the same as if everybody had bought his own drink each time. This custom comes from the fact that, in the UK, you have to go to the bar to order your drinks so it is much more efficient if one person goes and buys the drinks rather than everybody going at the same time. But beware, your fellow drinkers will form an opinion of you depending on your pub behaviour. They will expect you to buy a round as often as the others, neither more nor less. If you take your turn less often than expected, you might be reminded that "it's your round" at some point. On the other hand, if you buy more often, someone might step in and tell you "it's my round". The interesting consequence is that, in some cases, you might end up staying in the pub until everybody has bought a round, which can take a long time if there are 10 of you! Of course, the rule can be tweaked: if the group is large it is acceptable to limit the round to part of the group; or if there are ladies in the group, their turn might come less often.
Don't pack at all
Ideally, you shouldn't pack anything at all. No matter your taste and preference you can shop till you drop in London. So don't fill up those suitcases when you pack! The most important thing to bring is a pair of good shoes or boots that are comfortable to walk in for miles and miles... and bring a spare pair - when it rains it pours.
