Touring London

My name is Diane White and I’m a tour guide. It’s a great job, I meet new people everyday and show them a beautiful city – London! I like taking tourists to Buckingham Palace. The Queen and her family live in this amazing palace. It’s got very large, beautiful gardens and the Queen sometimes has parties in the gardens. The Tower of London is another famous place to show tourists. They like looking at the crown jewels. I also take tourists to Westminster Abbey – a very old and important church. Of course there are many museums to visit in London, too. You can learn about history at some museums, for example the Victoria and Albert Museum, the British Museum and the National Gallery. There are many things to do in the city. That’s why I love being a London tour guide.
