Whilst most people know that London is the capital of England, many foreigners to England get confused of the difference between England, Great Britain and the United Kingdom. Whilst England is in all of these, none of them is actually the same.
Great Britain is made up of England, Scotland and Wales. This is the whole of the larger of the two Islands (Ireland is the smaller island to the west). The United Kingdom on the other hand is made up of Great Britain plus Northern Ireland (the Republic Ireland is made up of the island of Ireland minus Northern Ireland).
Anyhow, back to the subject of London. London is a very big city which can have very big traffic problems. It is in my opinion though, a very good city for tourists to visit. Whether this be for the shopping (even if you just want to visit Harrods) or the sites (London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Saint Pauls cathedral, Lifeguards Parade, the Parks, the list goes on...), London has something for pretty much anyone.
In case you are wondering about the Concorde picture, after the last Concorde flew and the planes all retired to various places around the world, there was one left that was not airworthy. It was decided the best way to transport it was to cut its wings and tail off, put it in a specially designed barge and float it off to its final destination (where its wings and tail were re-fitted). Makes for rather a sad picture really.
