History, Technology and Computer Repair in London

London westminster and the london eye

London is one of the greatest cities of the world, up with New York, Paris and Berlin, according to Time Out, with such a huge amount of culture and history crammed into a relatively small space. Being the capital of England, and more broadly the United Kingdom, it has so much to offer to visitors, tourists, residents and those who commute in. Within this metropolitan city there are attractions such as the Tower of London, the London Eye and Trafalgar Square; Galleries including the Tate Modern, the National Gallery and the Saatchi Gallery; and museums like the Natural History Museum, the V & A and the Science Museum. That is barely the tip of what London offers. And then there are the services that are there to keep the city moving forward in todays world like the London Underground, computer repair in London, the financial districts, all 43 universities and the emergency services.

The London Underground, more commonly known as the tube, is a vital part of London life, almost as crucial as the internet, smart phones and PC maintenance, it is run by Transport for London (TFL) and stretches as far as Essex, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire. In 1863 the Metropolitan railway, now part of the Circle, Hammersmith and City, and Metropolitan lines, was built and also became the first electric traction trains. As engineering and technology advanced, so did the Underground; deep level underground tube railways, that then gave the underground its new name “tube”, were pioneered here in London with the City and South London railway being the first in the world. Then in 2003 the Oyster card with pay-as-you-go and travel card features made traveling on the underground even more streamlined. This mirrored the new societal changes, where consumerism and the fast-paced life of the city has become the norm, PC repair in London supports this growing trend, along with the newest gadgets as everyone is online, which is incidentally even now possible on the Underground!

London has always attracted people from around the world, and what seems to fascinate many of these tourists is the Royal family and the heritage associated with them. This becomes more apparent after seeing the masses of people building up outside Buckingham Palace taking photos that will then be uploaded to Instagram during the changing of the guard and wondering if the current state of the flag means that the Queen is at home.  Although the monarchy makes up a substantial part of the tourism industry taking in billions of pounds, it hasn’t been in political power, at least not as much as Parliament, since 1707 when Scotland and England joined and Queen Anne was on the throne. Queen Elizabeth II is now more of a symbol of unity and identity for the country, with traditional constitutional and representational duties to perform; she also must keep up to date with the news and current affairs, which is now probably done on her laptop or tablet, even the Queen will require computer repair in London to make sure this is possible!
