Note to recorder:

please natural speed with pauses when mentioning new buildings or landmarks, I'm going to show slides.

London has been a thriving city for over two millennia and as such is home to a fascinating range of buildings and landmarks.

Since 1965 Greater London has been divided into 32 boroughs in addition to the ancient City of London

and the City of Westminster.

The City of London is the main financial district
and Canary Wharf has recently developed into a new financial and commercial hub, in the Docklands to the east.

The West End is an area of central London containing many of the city's major tourist attractions,
shops,
businesses,
government buildings,
and entertainment venues (including the famous West End theatres), attracting tourists.
The name "West End" is a flexible term with different meanings in different contexts. It may refer to the entertainment district around Leicester Square
and Covent Garden;
to the shopping district on Oxford Street, Regent Street, and Bond Street.
