Welcome to the Charles Dickens London blog.
My name is James and I live in London and I have created this website to blog all the great things about the capital of England, being London.
So, London is the capital of England, United Kingdom. Within London we have history stretching back to Roman times.
Within the centre of London stands the iconic Big Ben clock tower, although as we blog in 2019 Big Ben is currently undertaking a massive refurbishment. Close to Big Ben are the amazing historical Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, place of the British monarch coronations.
Just across the river Thames you will see the London eye, which is a great observation point (wheel) that provides fantastic views of London’s South Bank, along with panoramic views of the entire city.
