Speakers’ Corner

Speakers CornerOn any given Sunday in Hyde Park – London you can listen to the passionate. It is known as Speakers’ Corner where you can assert your opinion with impunity as long as you are standing 6 inches above the ground.

The vim and vigor as well as audience participation make for hardy conversations and debate.

London

Admiralty ArchLondon –  known as the global capital of the world – where English is not the primary language heard on the streets.

Home to six Unesco world heritage sites.

Large beautiful parks offer a peaceful refuge for those needing to step away from overcrowded streets and the jam-packed Tube.

London has it all.  Old and new – fast and slow – expensive and more expensive.
