Blackfriars Railway Station



Blacfriars is one of the many railway stations lying on the River Thames, in this case at the North Bank. The beginning of Blacfriars dates back to the days when the underground station was built, in 1870. It grew up until the modern station we can see nowadays, with a demolition in the middle during the second half of the 20th Century. Blackfriars is specially interesting because it connects both shores of London, with the structure acting as a station and as a bridge.

Sports Cars in London (Chelsea)



After visiting Harrods, during my first day in London, I went for a walk in the neighborhood of Chelsea. In the afternoon, the streets flood with sports cars. The wealthy residents massively go out for a ride and, as a result, you may see traffic jams filled with very expensive cars. They use to go on Sloane St., from Pont St. to Sloan Square. Some of them got so excited when I took off my camera that they started to make really cool sounds with their cars. In this particular case, I recommend you to watch the video, as the sound is quite unique.

Piccadilly Circus & Trafalgar Square



Both Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square are the two social cores of London. Picadilly Circus is junction where many streets and avenues cros each other, famous for the big screens and the huge cultural offer. It currently is one of the doors to the theaters area. Trafalgar Square, on the other side, is part of much larger history who originally kept the King's Mews. The square we see today was built in the same place in order to commemorate the victory of England over the Napoleonic fleet, crowned by Nelson's Column.

London Eye



An inspiring example for many ferry wheels in the world, the London Eye became the new icon of the city. Strategically placed in the South Bank just in front of the Palace of Westminster, this wheel has hermetic capsules for 25 people each. The total number of capsules is 32, all of them representing one of the whole spectre of London Boroughs.

Change of Guards (Horse Guards Palace)



Following next, the Change at the Horse Guards Palace, which is a bit different to the classic Change of Guards of Buckingham. In this case, the huge orchestra enters to the open field and let the spectators watch from a very short distance. The music they play is a combination of pop and classical genres.

Appart from the Parliament, Westminster is specially recognized by its Abbey, where all of the the english kings were burried. Since it was first built almost 900 years ago, the former abbey was turnet into a Cathedral and later on into a temple directly administered by the Crown. The whole spectre of english and british kings were crowned in the Abbey.

Holborn Bars & Staple Inn



Following next, a particular selection of two venues in the Holborn Street, at the limits of the City of London. The first one is the Holborn Bars, formerly known as the Prudential Assurance Building, used nowadays as a multipurpose complex with WeWork rental offices. And second, the Staple Inn, famous for its Tudor style, quite strange in this part of London, and for surviving many fires and bombins throughout its more than 500 years of existence.
