Discover London

London, England is home to more than 17 million people.
London Bridge

London, England is the largest city in the United Kingdom. In fact, about 7.5 million people call this city home, including the Queen and Madonna! Check out the 411 on the city that was once the center of the English-speaking world.

London - Where Is It?

London is the capital city of the United Kingdom, which is an island off the coast of Western Europe. London is in the south-east of England.

London - The History

London has a long and complicated history, which is full of violence, blood shed, royalty and intrigue. The city was founded on a Roman outpost called Londinium. It became an important trade center in 886. Since 1558 (when the first Queen Elizabeth took the throne), London has been the political, cultural and economic center of England.

London - What to Do

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum

If you can't see all your fave celebs in the flesh, the next best thing is seeing them in wax! This has been a must-visit stop for any trip to London since it opened in 1835. There are life-like wax figures of infamous criminals, royalty and pop princesses like Britney, Beyonce (who has a shaking booty, no less!) and pop oldies like Michael Jackson and Madonna!

The London Eye

The best way to get a good look at this enormous city is to take a ride on the world's largest observation wheel. The London Eye is like a giant enclosed Ferris wheel that takes you on a half hour ride 450 feet (135 meters) above London! You'll get a bird's eye view, a wild ride and memories to last a lifetime. What more could you ask for?

London Dungeon

When you get tired of London life, you might want to give London death a try. This spooky museum will give you an authentic look at the gruesome and bloody side of English history. Be warned, this isn't your average stuffy museum - some of the exhibits aren't as dead as they appear! If you think you can handle it, the museum lies deep beneath London Bridge station. Good luck.

Free Museums

Most of London's museums have free admission, so why not check 'em all out? You can see fine art at Tate Britain or Tate Modern, big old tanks at the Imperial War Museum or giant dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum. You'll definitely get your money's worth!

I'm not going to dish on atheists. That's not how I work. But at school today I got upset because a guy told me he was dressing as Jesus because Christianity was a joke then he proceeded to yell at me for being a Christian!! I somehow was in the fault according to all his friends... I believe in God. If you don't then you have your right to your own opinion. And sorry I guess I just needed a place to rant. Thanks guys for listening.

I guess it depends on how far away the place is and if you're actually permitted to go in the first place, but at our school we're allowed to go out for lunch if we have special permission from a teacher.
