Sonnet XVIII

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;

But thy eternal summer shall not fade

Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;

Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou growest:

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,

So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

(by William Shakespeare)

Where to Live in London

London is so big that there is a great choice of places to buy a house but of course there are many things to think about such as price, transport, shops and green spaces. Here below are some of the districts you might want to look at.

West London. Ealing is about 12 km from the centre of the town and on two underground lines. There are great shops and a canal which is a pleasant place to walk.

South of Ealing, there are two areas you may want to think about. Brentford is becoming a very fashionable area to live with modern flats built here. It is close to Kew Gardens, one of the most beautiful gardens in London. The other area is Acton which, because it is close to the BBC studios, is a place where many BBC workers live.

North London. To the west of Hampstead is Finchley. North Finchley has a number of large family houses and the largest Japanese community in Britain. There are a lot of green spaces and the Northern Line underground runs through here. A cheaper area is around Finsbury Park, another beautiful green area. 15

minutes by underground from the centre of London, this is an area where prices are going to go up in the future.

East London. An interesting area is Beckton which used to be a very poor part of London but is now easy to get to because of the Docklands Light Railway and Underground. There are many new houses and flats here and it is very close to the London Docklands Airport. It’s not a great place for shopping but it isn’t too far from Stratford centre which is a big shopping centre. There’s a ski slope in Beckton and a big supermarket. As prices nearer the centre of London go up, more people are looking for a house here.

South London. You can’t beat Greenwich next to the river with its market and park with beautiful views of the river. It is crowded and the traffic is bad but it still feels like a village. At the top of the park is Blackheath, a real village with small arts and crafts shops and lots of nice restaurants. It hasn’t got many big shops but you can walk down the hill into Lewisham which is great for shopping. Blackheath isn’t on the underground but Greenwich is. You can catch a train from Blackheath to Charing Cross station.
