London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom. Near the Thames it’s on the southeast of the Great Britain island. It was created by romans in the 43 a.c. With 7.5 millions of inhabitants it is the biggest city of the European Union.
LONDON was created by Romans. In the fifth century it became the capital city of Great Britain. The monarchy lived in Westminster. In 1666 a big fire destroyed a big part of London. After that, the architects began to construct new buildings. Between the 19th and 20th centuries, it was the biggest city in the world. On the Second World War the Germans bombed the city. 30,000 Londoners died.
The Clock Tower is the world's largest four-faced, chiming clock. The structure is situated at the north-eastern end of the Houses of Parliament building in Westminster, London. It is often referred to as "Big Ben" — which is actually the main bell housed within the Clock Tower. Green Park is one of the Royal Parks of London. Covering an area of about 21 hectares, it lies between London's Hyde Park and St. James's Park. Together with Kensington Gardens and the gardens of Buckingham Palace, these parks form an almost unbroken stretch of open land reaching from Whitehall and Victoria station to Kensington and Notting Hill.
Harrods is a department store that specializes in luxury goods in London. The store occupies a 4.5-acre site and has over one million square feet of selling space in over 330 departments. This makes Harrods one of the largest department stores in the world, and the largest in the United Kingdom. The nearest tube station to the store is Knightsbridge. An entrance to the station is positioned adjacent to the store.
Cardiff is the capital and largest city in Wales, with recent local government estimates stating the city's population as being 317,500. Cardiff is home to the Welsh government in Cardiff Bay and much of the media in Wales. Cardiff was made a city in 1905, and proclaimed capital of Wales in 1955.
HISTORY A map of Cardiff from 1946 Romans established a fort in Cardiff called "the Fort of Didius". The town was first named Caerdidi (after Didius), then became corrupted into Caer-Taffe (meaning Fort on the Taff), then Caerdaff, then Cardiff. There is a second castle north of the city, called Castell Coch.The current castle is an elaborately decorated Victorian folly designed by Burges for the Marquess and built in the 1870s. Cardiff had a crucial strategic importance in the wars between the Normans and the Welsh who maintained their hold on the uplands. As a result Cardiff claims to have the largest concentration of castles of any city in the world.

Newcastle Newcastle upon Tyne is located along the north bank of the River Tyne and was formerly the county town of Northumberland. The city was founded in Roman times. The medieval Latin name is Novum Castrum super Tynum (Newcastle upon Tyne). The city was the 20th most populous in England. Newcastle was a member of the English Core Cities Group and the Eurocities network of European cities. People from Newcastle and surrounding areas are commonly called Geordies. The Latin term Novocastrian can equally be applied to residents of any place called Newcastle.
Early development During the English Civil War, Newcastle supported the king and in 1644 was stormed by Cromwell's Scots allies, based in pro-Parliament Sunderland. Newcastle's development as a major city, however, owed most to its central role in the export of coal.
Recent development The development of the city in the 1960s and 1970s saw the demolition of part of Grainger Town as a prelude to the modernist rebuilding initiatives of T. Dan Smith, the leader of Newcastle City Council. A corruption scandal was uncovered involving Smith and John Poulson, a property developer, and both were jailed. Echoes of the scandal were revisited in the late 1990s in the BBC TV mini-series, Our Friends in the North.
