In the central part of London every foot of the river has a tale of former days — palaces, docks, cathedrals and churches, fine bridges, theatres, and museums. Here you can spend many happy days exploring the city’s past, both on foot or by boat, shopping in the luxurious malls along the river and sampling fine foods at the numerous riverside pubs and restaurants.

While shopping in the luxurious malls, sampling fine foods, and going on excursions, I would be able to practise my English.
