G5 Now we are at Buckingham Palace. It is the London home of the Queen. When the flag is flying on the top she is at home. The ceremony of the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace is a great tourist at­traction. It takes place daily at 11:30 a. m. and lasts half an hour.

C: Does the Queen's family also live at the Palace?

G1: And now we are coming to Hyde Park. It is the largest park in the West End of London. In the 19th century it became a popular place for public meetings. The park has Speakers' Corner where anyone can make a speech about anything they want. It is a very democratic park.

G2 I welcome you to the British Muse­um. The British Museum has one of the largest libraries in the world. There are more than six million books in the library. You can see beautifully illustrated old manu­scripts which they keep in glass cases. In the reading-room of the British Museum many famous men have read and studied. Charles Dickens, a very popular English writer and author of "David Copperfield", "Oliver Twist", "Dombey and Son" and other books, spent a lot of time in the Bri­tish Museum library. At present the library has modern electronic equipment, so the reader does not have to wait long to re­ceive the material he needs.

G3 We are now on Piccadilly Circus. It is a square in the central part of London. In the square you can see people of many nationalities. Piccadilly Circus is the meet­ing-point of six streets. London's famous restaurants and best-known theatres and cinemas are on Piccadilly Circus. I wel­come you to the Royal Theatre. You can watch a scene from the play "A Terrible Situation". (The scene is acted out by the older pupils.)
