Globe Trekker London City Guide

(51 Menit)




England's capital, London, is one of the worlds great cities. Divided into north and south by the River Thames, it has the old city to the east and famed nightlife to the west. A melting pot of culture and nationalities, combined with a historical past has created an individual, vibrant and much visited city.

Join Globe Trekker travelers Jonathan Atherton and Megan McCormick as they explore this multi-cultural, multi-faceted and wonderfully historical city.




It takes two to capture the huge and exhilarating city of London, so Jonathan Atherton and Megan McCormick share the billing as they try to encompass all that Britain's capital has to offer.

But they soon head off in different directions. Jonathan explores the colourful east end markets and the drama of the British Museum. Megan finds new architecture amongst the medieval streets of The City. Jonathan discovers a stunning marble Hindu temple in the suburbia of Neasdon and Megan even tries out her Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre. There's even some good food at the ancient Borough Market, though Megan's English fried breakfast and Jonathan's jellied eels leave a lot to be desired but they both enjoy the nightlife of Soho. And while Jonathan hobnobs with the great and the good at Harrods and Royal Ascot, where he encounters Her Majesty once again, Megan has a flutter on the greyhounds at Walthamstow racetrack.
