KEW PALACE (London). Best known for being home to George 3 and his family. The palace was originally built in 1631 as a villa for a rich merchant. In 1728, it became a home for members of the royal family, and in 1736, George 3`s father, Frederick Prince of Wales, bought and expanded the building opposite the palace, known as the White House.

Bank of England in front, the Royal Exchange in the right and the statue?
The statue of James Henry Greathead, designed by James Butler, is installed outside the Royal Exchange, where it conceals a ventilation shaft. It was erected in 1994 on a traffic island in the middle of Cornhill, London, with traffic passing to either side, similar to the statue of Prince Albert at Holborn Circus.

The Underground is mainly associated with the rush hour-busyness by the Londoners. It is a very well operated system, however occasionally the travelling can be quite challenging at some period of times. It doesn't often happens to me but I love when the station is completely empty. It almost looks like the zombie apocalypse has begun. 🧟♀️ Interesting fact is that the UK’s London Underground was originally opened in 1863 for locomotive trains. In 1890, it became the world’s first metro system when electric trains began operating on one of its deep-level tube lines. Ever since it has been known as the Tube due to the shape of the tunnels.
