Culture of London 3

St Paul'si, with its magnificent colons, is London's Cathedral and embodies the spiritual life and heritage of the British people.

We know how important food is in the culture of a society and how rich the cuisine is consequently presented. Almost every dish has a story and a story can reflect a lot about the habits of of individuals which in the end add up to the wider title of culture.The traditional British cuisine includes the cuisine in London as well as the modern fast food. British food has traditionally been based on beef, lamb, pork, chicken and fish and it is generally served with potatoes and one other vegetable.

Battenberg cake is said to have been invented in 1884, in honour of the marriage of Queen Victoria's granddaughter.

Throughout time, architecture has turned out to be one of the most profoundly important reflections of culture. Architecture is created by people and it is more than just a stone-box made for living. It has the ability to relate to individuals in a very profound way. London hosts hundreds ofmagnificent historical structures(and I tell you they are not boring at all) and all other gigantic modern skyscrapers simultaneously. We see that the common point of all these buildings is that they are all splendiferous in order to reflect and symbolise the noble blood of the English society. Pure coolness. Let's take a look at them together quickly.Click on the little pushpins for more info. (You know, you just can't acquire more info this easy in an ordinary paper guide-book. Have fun!)

St. Mary Axe has become an iconic symbol of London and is one of the city's most well-known examples of modern architecture. Its shape resembles a blue bullet among the other buildings. You'll find yourself staring at it for minutes.

The Palace of Westminster has been the seat of the two Houses of Parliement. The famous Big Ben, which is probably the first thing you'll want to see in London, clock is located in the palace.

Chiswick Villa was inspired by several buildings of the 16th-century Italian architects. This fact shows the close association between the Italian-architecture and the British-architecture.

The White Tower is a keep (the strongest structure in a castle.) It is one of the largest keeps in the Christian world, with its its strength, majesty and lordly accommodation. When you visit the tower, I guarentee you that you'l feel like a medieval Londoner.

Here I am enjoying the famous fish&chips and the English Blueberry Muffin. London is a cold city and its sources of food is exsisted according to the local people's needs.
