London Attractions: Big Ben

If London is the destination for you then this great landmark is unavoidable. Big Ben is, without any doubt one of the most famous and most recognizable symbols of not just London, but the whole country, especially in the visual media.

London chauffeur services

The Name Big Ben

First let’s explain the ambiguity concerning the name itself. The origin of the nickname Big Ben is not quite clear, and there are two theories. Namely, first one says that it was named after Sir Benjamin Hall, the man who oversaw the installation of the tower, and he was affectionately known in the house as Big Ben, since he was a large man. Another theory claims that this landmark got its name from a heavyweight boxer Benjamin Caunt who was champion at the time. It is also known that at the time anything that was heaviest in its class was called Big Ben.
History and Characteristics

The name Big Ben now refers to the clock, bell and the tower, but it was first used to describe the Great Bell. It is part of the Palace of Westminster and is situated at its north end.

The Palace or the Houses of Parliament was destroyed in 1834 by fire and it was decided for the new building to include a tower and a clock, hence the Big Ben was constructed in 1859.
It is third tallest free standing clock tower in the world and the clock is world’s largest four-faced chiming clock. The tower was named Clock Tower till 2012 when it was renamed to Elizabeth Tower in honor of Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.

Augustus Pugin designed the clock and dials, and each dial is 7 meters in diameter and each clock dial contains 312 pieces of opal glass. The Latin inscription can be found under each clockface: “DOMINE SALVAM FAC REGINAM NOSTRAM VICTORIAM PRIMAM“, which means O Lord keep safe our Queen Victoria the First.

The Houses of Parliament is open for public and you can take a tour, but the Elizabeth Tower is not, though the residents of the UK can write to their MP and arrange a visit.

London Attractions: Buckingham Palace

London chauffeur services

If you are planning on visiting London this is one of the places you definitely must see. Among all of its attractions, this one stands out particularly and it is one of the greatest symbols of not just London, but the entire country, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Buckingham Palace
It is the official London residence and one of few remaining working royal palaces in the world. It was built in 1705 for the Duke of Buckingham and was known back then as Buckingham House. Originally, there were three houses on the site, Goring House that first belonged to Sir William Blake and where today’s garden began to develop. Second was the Arlington House which is the southern wing of today’s palace. And the last one was the aforementioned Buckingham House, which is the core of today’s palace and which was sold to King George III, and was a private residence from then on for Queen Charlotte.

Later in 19th century it was reconstructed again and enlarged by architects John Nash and Edward Blore. On the accession of Queen Victoria the palace became the official royal palace of the British Monarch in 1837. In the late 19th, early 20th century last changes were made, when the East front was added, where the famous balcony is situated, from which the royal family traditionally congregates to the public. Unfortunately, the palace chapel was crashed in World War II by a German bomb. Later the Queen’s Gallery was built and the site was open for public in 1962, where people could see the Royal Collection.

Much of its furniture was brought from Carlton House and Royal Pavilion, and the rooms are mostly furnished in Chinese style, while some parts of interior have blue and pink lapis and brightly colored scagliola. It is a property of British state and some of the contents from the palace, together with contents from Windsor Castle and Kensington Palace can be seen at Queen’s Gallery, which is open to public, and these contents are known as Royal Collection.

Every year thousands of invited guests are enjoying the garden parties, receptions and banquets all held in the London’s largest private garden.

As a visitor you have to pay only £19 to see some of the most famous treasures of Royal Collection.

Airport Transportation: Chauffeur Service vs. Taxi Service

London chauffeur services

When you are travelling to some distant destination, not only do you have to prepare for the trip itself, making sure you don’t forget anything and the airport fuss, including the check-in, all the controls, waiting in the row, but also you have to think about the transportation to and from the airport. Sometimes you are in even greater rush, because you have another flight to catch, so you have another thing to stress about, i.e. how to get there in time. Your first thought might be a cab, but you can never be sure that there will be one available at the exact time you need it and this way you are risking being late to that second flight. Chauffeur service, on the other hand, will sure be there at the exact time you ordered it and the professional driver will make sure you get to your destination safely and on time.

Here are some other advantages of chauffeur service when compared to cab service:

– Professionalism: The training and tests for becoming a professional driver are much more rigorous than those for taxi drivers. And while professional chauffeur will make sure you are comfortable and enjoying the smooth drive, taxi driver will be more concerned about the money. Plus, a real professional will always respect your wishes concerning the music and the temperature in the car, while the cab driver won’t offer that service. Cab drivers will usually let you load and unload your luggage yourself, while chauffeur will provide this service as well.

-Number and variety of cars: Chauffeured services offer greater variety of cars and you never have to worry about the number of cars, because even if you need more cars at the same time you won’t have to wait for it or call for an extra car, they will be waiting for you, just like you requested when you made the reservation. Also, you can pick from numerous car models and you can hire a really luxurious car, equipped with bar or TV, which is not the case with cabs.

– More space: Also, if you are travelling with a group of people, e.g. 15 people or more, chauffeur service will offer you a limo, so that you don’t have to hire three, four or more cars.

British Museum

This landmark was founded in 1753 and contains about 8 million works that originate from all continents and this collection spans over two million years of human history. Its founder is Sir Hanse Sloane, Irish physician and collector who gathered around 71,000 objects during his lifetime. The British Museum is national museum; it belongs neither to king nor church and is open to public. It is not just a museum, because when Cotton and Harley manuscripts were added it became a library as well.
The building was designed by Sir Robert Smirke in Greek Revival style in 1823. It was first a quadrangle with four wings, i.e. East Wing, which is the King’s library, North Wing, now known as Wellcome Gallery, West Wing or the Egyptian Sculpture Gallery and the South Wing, that was built last. Later on, few changes were made, most important being those who Sydney Smirke, Robert’s brother, and Sir John Taylor designed, the Round Reading Room and the White Wing. The building has 44 columns that are 14 meters high and in 1852 sculptures were added to the pediment of the main entrance, which consist of 15 allegorical figures.

There are ten departments, including library and archives, and those are: department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan, dept. of Greece and Rome, dept. of Middle East, Prints and Drawings, Prehistory and Europe, Asia, dept. of Africa, Oceania and Americas, dept. of Coins and Medals and department of Conservation and Scientific Research.
There is certainly a lot to see, and this museum will remind you of how brilliant and mesmerizing world and its history actually is.
The entrance to the British Museum is open for public and free, except for some special exhibitions and certain events, though the donation of 5£ is recommended.

Is Hiring a London Chauffeur Service Too Expensive?

Everyone wants to present themselves in the best possible light in certain occasions, like proms, graduation parties, weddings or birthdays. Your choice of transportation says a lot about how much you appreciate a particular person or particular event you’re attending. If you want to make an impression, then renting London chauffeur service is the right choice for you. You may be wondering, though, if it is too expensive and here we will answer all your questions. Basically, there are three types of limos: standard, stretch and classic limo; learn more about each in the following text.
London chauffeur services

-Standard

This type of limo can hold six to eight people and can be rented either by an hour or by a day. Price for this kind of limousine ranges from company to company, and some charge from the moment the driver gets on the road, while some start the rental clock when the customer gets into a car. Renting the standard limo will cost you approximately from £50 to £100 per hour.

-Stretch

If you were looking for a limo that can hold more than eight people, then you should pick a stretch limo, which can hold even up to thirty people. Some of these limos also have a mini bar or even a swimming pool, which is why their price is somewhat higher than the standard limos, and it is from £100 to £300 per hour. They also can be rented either by the hour or by the day.

-Classic

This is the most expensive version of limos to be rented. The reason is that these imply the classic style limos, like Rolls Royce and these types of limos are not that easy to find. Those who prefer this high class style will have to pay between £200 and £600 per hour.

So, whether one considers these prices reasonable or not depends on how much he can afford and is willing to pay for such a service. But, we can all agree that everyone needs to indulge himself every once in a while and make that special occasion memorable.
