5. London Bridge is falling down
The next fact on our list of things to know about United Kingdom is about the London Bridge. We have all heard that rhyme about the London Bridge right the one that goes “London Bridge is falling down, falling down..!”? This is exactly why the title sounds so familiar but who knew that the basic of this nursery rhyme was the actually London Bridge. Legend has it that the bridge was destroyed by the Saxons using boats and ropes.
4. The London Eye
London is famous for the London eye obviously. What most people do not know, however, is that the London eye is not the tallest observation wheel in the entire world. Another fascinating thing about the wheel is that it takes around 30 minutes for the wheel to complete one single rotation. It was the tallest before the High Roller in Las Vegas was built and no wonder it is called the London eye and we can only imagine what the view from up there would be like.
3. Chickens outnumber Human in the UK
Next on our list of things to know about United Kingdom has something to do with animals. Now we already knew that Mute Swans are owned by Queen Elizabeth and if a deer is killed by a vehicle then the deer belongs to the guy sitting next to the driver and not the driver himself. Little did we know (and we bet that little did you know) that the number of chickens in the UK is more than the number of human beings.
2. Introduction of Sports
Next on our list if something that all the citizen of the United Kingdom can be proud of and that is the introduction of sports like rugby, soccer and polo into the world. We guess this one liner will do justice to a fact like this eh?
Last but not the least we come to art and theatre on our list of things to know about United Kingdom. What we have to report is one of the most well known theatres in the world called the Theatre Royal Bristol. We are sure that most of knew this but what you didn’t know was that the theatre has been staging the popular act CATS since the year 1766!
This is all of what we had to report for the United Kingdom. The country has one of the most diverse populations in the world and despite that, the rich culture is something that all those in Britain can brag about. It is also a delightful country as far as tourism is concerned. What we have reported here in this article are only some of the interesting facts and even then UK and especially London is filled with such stories and historically amazing things that they will blow your mind.
