Often mentioned as the World’s capital, London accommodates more than 8 million people of different backgrounds and professions. It is the city which is constantly on the move, everything is quick here – traffic lights, coffee, business, even inviting somebody for a drink has an expression ‘for a quick pint’.

Well, as we all know, it’s the other way round in Britain. If we appeal to studies we can see that there are several points of views why the UK is a jurisdiction with left-hand traffic. Some historians think that the origins of left-handed traffic come from the ancient times (not far from Swindon, England archaeologists has found the evidence that when the Romans drove their loaded vehicles from the quarry more deep dints were made on the left side of the road). The other version is that the medieval travellers chose the left side simply because of keeping the right hand free either for swords (!) in case horsemen might need to defend themselves or to salute the passing riders offering them friendship – as most people were right-handed – meant to passing each other on the left. Another opinion is that the left-hand traffic was adopted from the marine rules where a ship has to pass another ship approaching from the right side. However, the first time when left-hand drive rule became mandatory was in 18th century. That rule was introduced in 1722 by Lord Mayor, who ordered that London Bridge traffic (the place where London started from) had to be kept to the left in order to regulate intensive traffic on the narrow bridge – the first ever road rule in Britain.

One of the most influential musicians and artists in the world, David Bowie, celebrates his 66th Birthday by introducing his first for the last decade single Where Are We Now (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWtsV50_-p4). It was released online without warning in the early hours of the last Tuesday morning (the date of his birthday), taking Bowie’s fans by complete surprise. But it will be even more than that – a complete new album, The Next Day, is following later this year.

Officially opened on January 1863, it now incorporates 270 stations with 426 escalators, employs 19,000 staff and has 402 km of track, 45 per cent of which is under the surface. Annually, the Tube (as it colloquially known) serves more than 1.1 billion customers, which makes it the third largest system in Europe in terms of passenger number, after Moscow and Paris. Instantly recognisable with its logo, the Tube has become an iconic symbol of London’s pop culture for many people around the world.
