Buckingham Palace - The Mall - Victoria Memorial



Along with the Parliament, the Buckingham Palace is the main center of the power within the UK and it has a symbolic value that can be compared to the White House. It contains the offices and the residence of the monarchy and the only way to access it (as a tourist) is in the summer season. Like many of the world capitals, this palace is connected to an important place nearby of the culture and the country. In this case, it unites Buckingham with Trafalgar Square through a red large avenue, "The Mall", who ends on the gorgeous Victoria Memorial, an epic monument made in marble.

Borough Market



Like many sites in London, the Borough Market is part of a larger history of the place where it currently lies. The first market was already in this part of London almost one thousand years ago. Nowadays, the Borough Market is within the main tourist circuit of the city and it mostly has gourmet shops under the rail bridge and many pubs on its limits.

London Underground (The Tube)



For a long time, London was the biggest industrial core in the world. In that golden era, during the 1850s, and along with the dozens of rail lines who lead to the factories and wharfs of the River Thames, a new revolutionary idea was materialized: to take the passenger trains underground. The first metro line of the world was then built,
connecting in this case Paddington with Farringdon St. by steam locomotives. The huge success that it had, along with the ambition of London of those times gave as a result the biggest metro network in the world. Nowadays, it's only overcome by Shanghai and Beijing.

Harrods London



Though it belongs to the Royal Family of Qatar, the luxury deparment stores of Harrods was originally part of the business conglomerate of Charles Henry Harrod, a tycoon who owned retail business, real estate, a bank, and even his own airline (Harrods Aviation). These stores are located in Knightsbridge, one of the most exclusive neighborhoods of London, and most of the shops belong to luxury brands. It's easy to see, then, walking by on its hallways the families of the kings and princes of middle eastern countries, mixed with the high class of many countries of the world. At the beginning of the 20th Century, Harrods planned and opened the only international store outside of the UK, in Buenos Aires, where the british-influenced building is still preserved nowadays.
