Favorite thing: Like any other international capital, the foreign embassies in London have usually seized the best buildings in the best locations. For instance, the Canadian and South African embassies occupy enormous buildings just off Trafalgar Square.
Favorite thing: A vast representation of London's architecture is brooding, stony-faced and ashen. Featureless blocks of granite in every neighborhood loom four, five and six stories high, so many faces all frowning, grave and sober. The severity of these lifeless blocks may have been designed to reflect the stiff upper lip of the English mindset, but they also rob too many cityscapes of any impressions of joy or laughter.
If you walk around in London, It is really worth to look around.
There are plenty of beautiful old buildings, which are not mentioned in your travel guide, because they have no big historical past.
Like this old house I did see in Praed street, The Grand Junction Arms, I believe it was a former pub.
Favorite thing: London is a feast for the eyes, take a look and you'll see some interesting architectural detail such as these fish lamposts, winged lion or mileage marker in my photos.
Favorite thing: One of the things I like about London is the mixture of old and new buildings...side by side. I'm not sure why, as most have been designed individually...but they seem to work!
Favorite thing: London latest skyscrapers. Known as the Gherkin Building. The top floor contains a restaurant which consider on of the highest and exlusive restaurant compliment with London city view.
In the middle of modern buildings in the City, I found a pleasant surprise – Victorian style architecture. It is a market place.
Fondest memory: Very stylish and posh.
Favorite thing: As London is such a large and historical city it has hundreds of old churches, many of which are very architecturally impressive.
Favorite thing: Under construction in February 2003 - as seen from Bishopsgate, just outside Liverpool Street Station.
Favorite thing: I took a picture of my Mom in the same position. This boardwalk on the north bank just east of the Tower of London is definitely the best spot to get a great "souvenir" photo of you and the bridge!
Favorite thing: My favourite buildings in London are the Houses of Parliament. On a clear day the views of parliament from south of the river or along Westminster Bridge are great.
Favorite thing: As you can see on this picture which shows a detail of a clock, some of these clocks were fine pieces of art.
Favorite thing: I found it also remarkable, to see the clocks of the churches hanging above the street, a bit like signboard of a shop or a pub.
Fondest memory: Magnificent Tower Bridge! Best way to look at it is by ferry trip where you can get it at the Westminster. The boat trip takes about 40minutes and you'll have a good panoramic view of London.
