Famous sites around London 4

Sorry about not posting yesterday, I was busy looking around London for photos. Well now I am going to show you a photo of a famous site around London and some facts to go with it.

Over 35 km of steel weighing 10,000 tonnes was used to build 30 St
Mary Axe.
 There are 24,000 sq m of external glass- equivalent to five football
 Despite its curved shape, there is actually only one piece of curved
glass – the lens at the top of the building which is 2.4m in diameter and
weighs 250kg.
 The glass dome at the top of the building provides 360 degree views of
 The top two floors of the building, 39 and 40, are available for the use
of tenants of the building during the day and to external parties in the
evenings (subject to Landlord’s approval).
 There are 18 passenger lifts in the building, and, at any one time, 378
people can be vertically transported through the building at speeds up
to 6m per second.
 Work began on the site in January 2001 and the first occupants moved
in just 35 months later in December 2003.

Famous sites around London 3

Since Tuesday I have been doing a post about a famous site around London. I am not going to give up today so I will be doing the same, a famous site in London and 10 facts to go with it.

                                                          Big Ben

  • Big Ben is actually the name of the huge bell, but most people use it to refer to the clock and the tower as well. It is the world’s largest chiming clock with four faces.
  • The clock tower was built between 1843 and 1858 and is 316 feet high and it is part of the Palace of Westminster. Although the public is not allowed inside, there are great views from the nearby London Eye.
  • Big Ben was probably named for the Commissioner of Works, Benjamin Hall, a man well known for his large size.
  • The clock tower has featured in dozens of movies, including Shanghai Knights and the 1978 version of The 39 Steps. Both films feature an exciting climax with the hero hanging from the clock hands.
  • The minute hand on Big Ben weighs about 220 pounds and is just over 12 feet long. Every year, the hand travels the equivalent of about 118 miles.
  • Pennies are still placed on the mechanism to ensure the clock is as accurate as possible. The clock gains 2/5 of a second in a day when one penny is added.
  • An inscription in Latin in gold letters along the bottom of each of the clock faces reads ‘O Lord, keep safe our Queen Victoria the First’.
  • Big Ben’s chimes have been famous for over 150 years. During World War 2, the sound of the chimes being broadcast told the world that Britain had not been defeated.
  • A Big Ben LEGO set has been produced. Part of the LEGO Architecture series, the set (21013) has over 340 pieces.
  • The bell is just over seven feet tall, and weighs about the same as an elephant. When it was cast in 1858, it took two weeks for the bell to cool down.

Big Ben is such a good place to go.

10th Parkrun

My 10th Park run. At Manor Park. 3 mile or 5k whatever you want to call it. Each week they have an awesome, hard parkrun whatever the weather is like. But I have not just done one, I have done 10.

It was hard to succeed but after all the work, I was glad to achieve it.

Any questions please comment.

Famous sites around London 2

I hope you liked my last post about London because if you did your going to enjoy this one much more. So the last post, I had a picture of a famous place in London and gave 10 facts about it. I am going to do the same in this post.

                                                              Tower Bridge

  • Tower Bridge was built between 1886 and 1894.
  • It spans the River Thames, connecting the London boroughs of Tower Hamlets (north side) and Southwark (south side).
  • The bridge combines elements of a suspension bridge design with elements of a bascule bridge design. It has two towers linked by two walkways and suspended sections to either side of the towers, stretching towards the banks of the Thames.
  • Tower Bridge was designed by Sir Horace Jones, the City Architect.
  • The central span of the bridge can be raised to allow ships to pass.
  • More than 400 workers helped to build the bridge and over 70000 tons of concrete were was sunk to the bed of the River Thames to suport the bridge.
  • Tower Bridge is 244 metres long and each tower is 65 metres high.
  • The pedestrian walkways are over 40 metres above the river when it’s at high tide.
  • Although the design of the bridge is much admired today, it was quite heavily criticised when it was built.
  • Over 40000 people use Tower Bridge every day.
They are some interesting facts!

My Trip To The Arsenal Stadium

Everyone has a favourite football team but your opinion will be different to the guy sat next to you. And today I will tell you my opinion and my trip to the stadium. As you can guess from the title my favourite team are the Gunners. (Nick name for Arsenal.) But recently Arsenal are doing quite bad as for their chance of winning a trophy. But that does not matter now because I am telling you about the trip to the stadium.

The Trip.

Got off at London St Pancras International from the train and jumped on the tube to Holloway Road. After a quick detour to MC Donald's we were ready to go looking around the stadium.

And there you have my trip to the Arsenal stadium.
