 Situated in North Yorkshire, York is the second most visited city in England. It attracted a lot of visitors because of its historic(歷史上有重大意義的)buildings and its long history, which can be dated back to 71 AD. York was founded(創立)by the Romans in 71 AD and was captured by the Vikings in 866 AD. It also witnessed a lot of wars and battles during the Stuart and Tudor times. No wonder King George VI once said, “The history of York is the history of England.”

Windsor is a town in the county of Berkshire. It is famous for its Windsor Castle, which is the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world. Since it takes only around an hour to travel from London to Windsor by train, many people often go to Windsor for a day trip when they visit London.

Visit Northumberland!

Northumberland is a rural county in the most northern part of England. As it is very close to Scotland, its scenery is very different from other parts of England. It is also the most sparsely populated(人口稀少的)county in England. When I was travelling in this area last September, I visited Alnwick Castle and Holy Island.

 English writer Samuel Johnson once wrote, "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life." This is not an exaggeration(誇張)as there is really plenty to see and experience in London. 

When I was travelling in London last October, I visited Buckingham Palace, the Queen's official residence(住所)where I watched the Changing of the Guard ceremony. I also took pictures in front of iconic(標誌性的)spots like the Palace of Westminster, Big Ben and Tower Bridge.

Songs and Singers

I really like listening to English songs, especially those from British singers. My favourite band is the Beatles! This amazing band was formed in Liverpool by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr in 1960, and their popularity quickly spread around the globe(地球). Although around 40 years have passed since the band dissolved(解散), they are still the best-selling band of all time.

I believe most of you have read a Harry Potter book or watched a Harry Potter movie. In 1990, when J. K. Rowling was on the train from Manchester to London, the inspiration for Harry Potter popped up in her head. She started writing the Harry Potter book series, which became a very popular fantasy book series that took the world by storm (席捲全球). I remember reading the first Harry Potter novel when I was 11, fascinated by the magical story that J.K.

"Oxbridge" is a term that refers to the two prestigious(著名的) universities in the United Kingdom - the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge. They are the first and the second oldest universities in the English-speaking world with over 800 years of history. 

There is a long history of rivalry(競爭)between the two universities. Apart from competing for university rankings, the two universities also compete in sports competitions like the annual Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race.

A p a r t f r o m h i g h t e a a n d g a r d e n s, England is also well-known for its lakes. Last September, I visited the Lake District, which is a mountainous area in the northwestern part of England. The Lake District National Park is the largest national park in England, attracting millions of visitors every year.

Harrods department store is one of my favourite stores in London. It is the largest department store in Europe and probably the most famous one in the world. I am always fascinated by its size. In fact, I have only visited around twenty departments out of its three hundred departments although I have been there a few times. All sorts of products like perfume(香水), electronics( 電子產品)and clothing can be found in Harrods. I meet lots of tourists whenever I go there. According to some reports, up to almost 300,000 customers are in the shop on peak days.
