Summary

London is one of the world’s major cities, and one of the most influential. Its history reflects the UK’s history. As home to Royalty and the site of Government, it saw the beginning of the UK and was the centre of one of the world’s greatest empires.

We’ll be looking at the classic, tourist London, as well as more deeply into its history and culture to explore its connections with Britain, Europe and the world.

Lesson One
London has had a long and varied history, and its buildings show some of this. We’ll be looking at some of the history of London and exploring what makes London not just a city but a global city.

Lesson Two
A classic “London story” – the story of Jack the Ripper, the world’s first recognised serial killer. We’ll see what Jack the Ripper, the time and the place say about London more generally.

Lesson Three
London in the imagination: art, writing and music. We’ll look at poets like Wordsworth and novelists like Dickens and singers like Adele, as well as comparing London in the original Sherlock Holmes stories.
