你不知道我一直在回避写这篇博文多久了。多年来我一直在告诉自己要写一本伦敦城市指南,但有一个问题:这很吓人。伦敦的历史中心有如此多的层次和秘密,我总是觉得它太大了,无法处理。But that's changing today.

Why?I've been really busy lately,出于某种原因,我越忙,工作效率就越高。真奇怪,但我很高兴它能让我接受挑战。这是我对这个城市的看法。I hope you enjoy it.

城市

I first learned 万博全站客户端about this London neighborhood when I lived in San Francisco.I kept reading articles inThe Economist谈到伦敦城,万博全站客户端and I always wondered why the magazine wrote such a redundant phrase.Obviously London is a city,so why say it every time??

City of London

然后我突然想到这个短语伦敦市referred to a specific part of London.我查了一下,发现是真的。The City is the oldest part of London,dating all the way back to Roman times.Also called the Square Mile,the neighborhood is actually a city within a city.It has its own mayor and everything.

Ye Olde Cock Tavern

History and administration aside,这座城市是伦敦最迷人的地方之一。它不仅是圣保罗大教堂等主要标志性建筑的所在地,but also a tangle of narrow alleys and lanes that are always rewarding to wander down.

圣保罗大教堂

它是伦敦唯一一个与世界上最新的摩天大楼并排坐落着罗马墙的地方。It's home to the Gherkin—arguably London's most beloved modern building—and the Barbican—definitely its most reviled.These layers and contrasts are what first lured me to the City,他们一直在吸引我。

My favorite thing to do when I'm in the neighborhood is get lost.I duck down the alleys off Fleet Street,像内殿一样的庭院,通过像Leadenhall这样的覆盖市场。

我漫步经过英格兰银行,into the Royal Exchange,and around Smithfield.因为每次我在城市里迷失自我,我都会发现更多的东西值得我去爱。万博全站客户端

And maybe that's the real reason I've held off on writing a City of London guide for so long.我一直担心最好的发现会是我的下一个。But that's exactly why it's worth blogging 万博全站客户端about.我希望以此为起点,you'll be able to uncover your own favorite secrets of the City.

18.关于《女士伦敦城快速指南》的评论

  1. 去年我们在这里过了感恩节!Loved the location because of it's proximity to St.保罗和塔台都很喜欢un-touristy"it was.提醒游客注意——因为这主要是一个商业区,周末没有很多地方可以吃,但是你离一座通往自治区市场的桥不远!!

  2. 几个月前我去伦敦出差,我大部分时间都呆在这平方英里的地方。I had never spent much time there previously and I have to say I thought it was amazing.那个地区新旧交融得如此鲜明,简直是超现实主义。

    我这次旅行的重点是参观伦敦劳埃德大厦。太神奇了,modern building.然而,business is conducted in such an old school way where everything is done face to face and paper documents are literally signed and stamped.And if you haven't been,there is a room on the top floor that was literally recreated from the original Lloyd's building including walls,ceiling and floor.我可能更感兴趣,因为我在这个行业,但我认为对任何人来说,旅游都是值得的,因为它在世界保险业中具有重要意义。

  3. 早在九月份我就在这个地区呆了很多时间。I found great places to eat,有人喜欢我这周发布的会计室酒吧,还有一个舒适的地下室。万博全站客户端I was particularly interested in the"寺庙“and I spent a lot of time exploring those areas.In fact I passed through that opening on Fleet Street in your second photo many times on that trip.我有点嫉妒布莱斯(以上评论)。I would love to tour the Lloyd's building one of these days.我一直对那座建筑物很感兴趣。I do love to wander among those modern tall buildings and find the little history filled places squeezed between and below them.

  4. 这是一本非常棒的书,对我来说非常及时——我去过伦敦很多次,and have lived for half a year in Lancaster,but I know there's always more layers to uncover.喜欢你的写作,and I can't wait to uncover more 万博全站客户端about the City of London xx

  5. 你说得对,这座城市有很多层次。It is by some distance the most intriguing part of the metropolis.我对任何游客的建议是在周末安静的时候去探险。

    只有狄更斯堆垛,鹪鹩科the seven gates,Livery Companies,鬼魂,金chophouses… Enjoy 😉

    PS – If possible take advantage of the Open House event in September when many buildings (like Lloyd's of London) are open to the public.

  6. 这座城市是一个非常特殊的地区。要到达这座城市的真正灵魂,你必须穿过它的小巷。If we do,我们将发现伦敦与众不同的本质。是什么让它与众不同,又是什么把它带到了另一个维度,这在所有人的想象中都是存在的,但游客们并没有以其他方式去探索。
