London, England is a city full of museums and sights, and this DVD reveals the city as a living, breathing, and constantly evolving museum in its own right. Whether viewing the faces in the National Portrait Gallery, gazing at the neo-gothic splendor of the Houses of Parliament, enjoying the bustle of Fleet Street, or floating past Big Ben down the Thames, this Art History & Travel Documentary showcases London, capital of the United Kingdom, as one of the world’s elite cities through the historic lens of its influential past.

 

Where some programs offer a resourceful travel guide, and others a historic summary, this program combines the best of both elements to develop a modern travel guide steeped in history.  Reflecting on the 2000 years of cultural and intellectual history of this unparalleled center of art, literature, architecture and monuments, this film serves as a wonderful and helpful foundation for first time travelers, as well as an instrumental resource in studying London’s storied past and its unquestionable influence on Western Civilization.

 

From high tea at Buckingham Palace to a pint at the local pub, from an afternoon stroll through Hyde Park to an evening of Shakespeare at the Barbican, “London: City of Majesty” unveils the marvels and allure of London in this installment of the popular Museum City Series.

 

Some of the many places, events, and people covered in this extensive documentary DVD include the Markets, Theaters, Bridges, & Parks of London, the National Gallery, the Tate, the British Museum, the V&A Museum, the Science Museum, the Museum of Natural History,  the Homes of Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, and Home of Sir John Soanes, Tower of London, The Monument & The Great Fire of London,  St. Mary-le-Bow Church, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Old Bailey, Middle Temple, Temple Bar, Cleopatra's Needles, Waterloo Bridge, Westminster Alley, the Cenotaph, Downing Street, the Banquet Hall, and much more.

 

Home of Princes and politicians, high tea and Hyde Park, William Shakespeare and William the Conqueror, this brilliant documentary film reaffirms Samuel Johnson’s famous declaration “When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”
