A tour around the capital
Have you ever been to London? Do you know about the London Blue Plaques?
The plaques are special blue signs that are put up in honour of famous people. And there are a few of them dotted around that you can see as you walk the streets of London. Come on – let’s see who we can find!
Just half a mile from Broadcasting House. This is the house where Virginia Woolf lived from 1907 to 1911. Woolf was a famous novelist. A famous film ‘The Hours’ tells her biography, she was played by Nicole Kidman, who won an Oscar for her performance. The next important place in London is Soho. This is the place where television was first demonstrated. How many of us have a TV? And who invented it? Well, it was John Logie Baird, a Scottish engineer in 1926. The house where Newton lived from 1642 to 1727 can be found in London. Isaac Newton was a scientist and he came up with a theory of gravity – the invisible force that keeps us on the earth.
At the last stop on our Blue Plaque tour we can visit a world-famous musician’s home. Can you guess who he was? He wasn’t British like our other famous Blue Plaque people. He came to London from another country and had a big influence on other musicians in his time and after his death. His surname begins with the letter ‘H’… If you are thinking of the classical composer Handel, then well done – you are right! If you’re thinking, “Wait a minute! It’s the home of rock guitar legend Jimi Hendrix,” then you are also right!
