Hi there! I’m Dima. Here is my letter to a friend about my trip to London.

Exam in Mind Level B1/B2

Hello Lisa,

I have just arrived in the UK for my travel journey across the country. I decided to come here by train through the English Channel because the ticket prices are quite affordable. The first city I plan to visit is London, and I hope to create unforgettable memories in this vibrant city. I believe it will be fascinating to explore the numerous unique locations found throughout the country.

While watching a TV program, I came across some must-see places in London that caught my interest. First and foremost, no tourist visit to London is complete without seeing Big Ben, and I am no exception. They say if you haven’t seen Big Ben, you haven’t truly experienced London.

The second attraction on my list is Buckingham Palace. As the royal residence, it offers a glimpse into the lives of the royal family. Many tourists also enjoy taking pictures with the marching guards. Thanks to its presence in English films, TV shows, and media, Buckingham Palace has become a popular landmark worldwide.

The Tower of London is the third destination on my travel itinerary. I find it intriguing due to its rich historical significance. It has served as both a royal palace and a prison in the past. Nowadays, it is a museum where visitors can explore its fascinating architecture and hear captivating stories from the well informed guides.

Last but not least is St. Paul’s Cathedral, the largest and most beautiful church in London, decorated with stunning ornaments inside. After seeing a picture of this place on Google, I was amazed by its beauty. I am particularly excited to visit the Whispering Gallery within the dome, a popular spot where one can whisper to a friend standing on the opposite side.

I believe this selection of sights will provide a great introduction to London, and I hope it proves to be the ideal choice for the beginning of my grand trip. If you have any suggestions or questions, please feel free to reach out. If you’d like to see the complete list of places, I can send it to you via Messenger.

Best wishes,
