London the capital city of England located on the banks of river Thames is one of the few places in the world where you will find a true amalgamation of vivid cultures from across the globe.

First Visit-

 Since I came to Newcastle (England) for my Graduation, London was the first place I visited with my three amigos on Road. It was a 3 day trip during Christmas vacations. 

Our odysseys begin at 4 am on a chilled December morning and we were all set to travel across England in our personal wagon. It was my first drive in a foreign land and I was quite thrilled. After 5 hr. of dashing driving when we reached London. I was delighted thinking that, here I am standing right in front of Big Ben in this famous city of London.

 London is one of the oldest cities of the world and it can be clearly seen in its architecture. We hired a hop on and hop off tour bus for a short ride across the city passing through the famous tower bridge, a cruise in river Thames and commuted through London metro or as rightly said tubes.  During the excursion we saw Big Ben, London Eye, Queen’s Castle, Madame Tussaud's  Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park, Oxford Street, London Ice bar, British Museum and the list goes on. After this journey I visited London many more times during my stay in England  but my first experience is always special and its memories stay fresh and alive.

Since then I visited London a lot of times,I even visited the platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross Station from the Harry Potter books. The Imperial War museum and British museum were few places where I tried to gain a lot of additional knowledge not only about England but also all over the World.
