Hello, my name's Sophia and this video is for the British Council LearnEnglish Teens website and their YouTube channel. In today's video I'm going to be taking you around London with me. It's a bit foggy and a bit chilly, but we're going to have fun. Let's go!
My day started off quite early. I headed to central London for a surprise ride on the London Eye. Although the underground tube is the fastest way into central London, we decided to take the bus so we can look out the window while we were travelling. Along the way we saw many famous sights, including Westminster Cathedral, Houses of Parliament and of course – the Big Ben.
Unfortunately it was a very foggy day in London, so we couldn’t see very well when we were on the London Eye; we could only really see the South Bank below us and the capsule in front of us. Maybe we’ll have better luck next time! The weather in London changes all the time. Just two days before, it was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and it wasn’t cold at all! In London you can experience the four seasons all in one week!
Even if the weather was a little bit bad, it didn’t stop us from having a good time. Wintertime in London is my favourite time of the year. There are lots of Christmas trees and beautiful lights everywhere and there are also many funfairs all around London. Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park is one of the most popular funfairs.
After a jam-packed day of walking around and exploring, my family and I decided to eat out in one of the very many restaurants in London. London is very multicultural and we have cuisines from all over the world.
So I hope you've enjoyed following me around London. Please comment below and let me know if you've ever been to London, what your favourite part is, and also let me know what you like to do where you live. Thanks again for watching, I hope you enjoyed and, until the next one, goodbye.
