Central London : From Trains to Taxis


My first day out to tour  London, specifically Central London. My hosts has invited me to join them for some tea at the Ritz Hotel and for lunch at the Rules restaurant. A separate blog about my adventures there were posted also in this blog.

I had to take the train to go to Central London, and took a few taxis to go from one location to another. For sure, I didn't want to get messed up and looking sweaty on the outfit I was wearing that day. I also continued my tour on the second day wearing similar classy formal outfit making me look like a distinguished guest of the city.

Central London is the innermost part of London, England. There is no official definition of its area, but its characteristics are understood to include a high density built environment, high land values, an elevated daytime population and a concentration of regionally, nationally and internationally significant organisations and facilities.

 


The central area is distinguished, according to the Royal Commission, by the inclusion within its boundaries of Parliament and the Royal Palaces, the headquarters of Government, the Law Courts, the head offices of a very large number of commercial and industrial firms, as well as institutions of great influence in the intellectual life of the nation such as the British Museum, the National Gallery, the Tate Gallery, the University of London, the headquarters of the national ballet and opera, together with the headquarters of many national associations, the great professions, the trade unions, the trade associations, social service societies, as well as shopping and entertainment centers which attract people from the whole of Greater London and farther afield.



 




In many other respects the central area differs from areas farther out in London. The rateable value of the central area is exceptionally high. Its day population is very much larger than its night population. Its traffic problems reach an intensity not encountered anywhere else in the Metropolis or in any provincial city, and the enormous office developments which have taken place recently constitute a totally new phenomenon.
