My England prezi.

London is one of the most visited cities in the world mostly due to the London Olympics, which they held 3 times. Landmarks, such as the Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower of London, and Tower Bridge London, also draw many people. Many people come for the unique climate. London is known for its warm summers, snowy winters, fog, rain, and cool days. London is the capital of England.
Manchester, also known as the "English capitol of sports", is where "football" is played. No, not the American football, but, in the American language, it is soccer. The soccer arena is also located in Manchester.
Birmingham is most known for its artsy culture, having a vast number in ballet, dancing, theater, and art. Birmingham has the arts of England. One museum portrays "The Haywain" by Constable, "The Lady of Shallot" by Waterhouse, "The Scream" by Edvard Munch, and the "Mona Lisa" by da Vinci.
Liverpool is the "Cultural capital" of England. Being the Beatles, of the 1960's, hometown, it is known for its soaring cathedrals, Victorian mansions, and ambitious skyscrapers. Even though British, the people of Liverpool call themselves "Scousers" because of their famous scouses, meat-potato stew.
Scouses: meat potato
Bristol is known for its amazing natural and historic land marks such as the Clifton suspension bridge, the oldest bridge in England that was built in the 1300's and its still up and running, S.S. great Britain, the "Ship Who Saved the World", British Old Vic, the oldest running theater, and Cheddar Gorge, a series of caves, valleys and mountains that one can drive through! Having the second highest tidal range in the world (beaten by the Bay of Fundy in Canada) it has a lot of the sights and sees of Great Britain. My grandfather is from this beautiful city of England.

English Channel Tunnel
The English channel is a waterway seperating England from Europe. It is 31 miles consisting of Chunnel, a subway that goes under the water. The Chunnel consists of three tunnels: two running tunnels carry the trains and a smaller, middle tunnel is used as a service tunnel. It takes 35 minutes to travel across the Channel Tunnel which connects Folkestone in Great Britain with Coquelles in France.
Stratford-upon-Avon was the birthplace and childhood home of the well-known William Shakespeare the author of many well-known tragedies, comedies, histories, and poems such as Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Julius Caesar.
Eric Liddell was a strong Christian runner born in China. His ethical background was Scottish while his parents moved to China to be missionaries. Eric Liddell left China to go to a Scottish boarding school then he went to collage in London. He joined the collage running team and made it to the Olympics winning 1 gold and 1 bronze. Then he returned to China to do what his parents did. China at this time was occupied by Japan in WWII. He preached to many and healed the wounded. He along with many other non-natives was forced out of the country by the Japanese. He died on February 21, 1945 in a Japanese concentration camp. In 1981, the movie Chariots of Fire launched into theaters honoring the Olympic champion and missionary Eric Liddell.
Stonehenge is an old monument in England used 5000 years ago as a measurement in tracking the stars an sun. The old English people carried these monstrous rocks possibly by river or cattle from Wales. These stones called Bluestones were put in the right position so that the Celts, as the old English people were called, could measure the sun, seasons, and the moon's path.
