Hi guys I am Ale Theo, I am Brazilian and want to show you a bit of my time and experience in
London and share a bit of history of the places I have visited. London is an amazing city with
lots of beautiful places to go, I hope you can enjoy it as much as I have one day too.
I started with Tower Bridge, a weighbridge built on the River Thames. It was opened in 1894 and is
currently one of the most visited tourist spots in the city. Apart from being known as a world wide
attraction, at night time I think it is one of the most romantic places I have ever been. The lights
are simply beautiful. You must visit Tower bridge both during the day and at night.
Big Ben is the name of the bell in the clock tower, which was installed in the Palace of Westminster
during the administration of Sir Benjamin Hall, public works Minister of England in 1859. For being a
tall, burly fellow, Benjamin was given the nickname Big Ben.
The Tower of London
If you cross the bridge by foot you have a amazing view of lots of modern buildings and then you
will see her majesty’s royal palace and fortress The Tower of London, more commonly known as
Tower of London (and historically just as The Tower). It is a historic monument in Central London,
on the North Bank of the Thames. It is precisely located in the Borough of Tower Hamlets and is
close to a lovely open space called Tower Hill. The building of the Tower of London begun in
1078 by William the Conqueror.
After or between model castings I like to go and relax in a park, a very nice one that I highly
recommend is Green Park. You can take the underground there, and from there you can
also walk to the Buckingham Palace – the home of the Queen.
You can find very delicious and fun restaurants around London, serving food from practically
anywhere around the world. I loved this table football restaurant called Kick in Shoreditch.
Buckingham Palace is the official residence and principal workplace of the monarch of the United
Kingdom. Originally known as Buckingham House, the palace was built in 1703 for John Sheffield,
St Duke of Buckingham and Normandy, in a place that was private property for at least 150 years.
Buckingham Palace only became the official residence of the British monarch in 1837 with the
Ascension of Queen Victoria.
I have learnt so much exploring this beautiful city. London is one of the best places I have ever
modelled in, it is a lot of fun and I hope you get the chance to enjoy it as much as I have!
Love Ale Theo x
