“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life.”
As Dr, Samuel Johnson said, you feel never bored in London.
While walking this one of most popular sightseeing cities of the world,
you can find interesting views, both new and historical ones.

Smithfield has a bloody history of executions of heretics and
political opponents, including major historical figures
such as Scottish patriot William Wallace,
the leader of the Peasants' Revolt Wat Tyler
and a long series of religious reformers and dissenters.
Jack the Ripper
In the autumn of 1888, a series of gruesome murders
brought widespread Panic to the street of London’s East End
and sent shockwaves reverberating through polite society.
The victims were women earning income as prostitutes.
Most victims' throats were slit, after which the bodies were mutilated.
The removal of internal organs from three of the victims led
some officials at the time of the murders to propose
that the killer possessed anatomical or surgical knowledge.
And, we walked around more attractive places of London together!!
