Listen to the text and do the task.
London was built by Romans in the place where they first crossed the River Thames. They built a city a square mile in size, surrounded it with a wall and called it Londinium. This original sight of London is now called the City of London and is Britain’s main financial centre.
At that time, about 1000 years ago, the Tower of London was built by William the Conqueror. Tower Bridge was built only in 1894.
The City is only a very small part of London, in the eleventh century, London began to expand beyond the City walls when King Edward the Confessor built a huge abbey at Westminster. Even today, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of parliament, as well as all the shops, caf s, theatres and cinemas of the West End, are in the City of Westminster and not in the City of London.
