This is my third visit to Westminster Abbey and certainly wouldn't be my last. I was there a day after Stephen Hawking's body was interred there, and as I was in London on business at the time, I had to pay my respects to him....More

OK, you will want to see the Houses of Parliament from the outside at least. So you will be by the Abbey. Do not walk past. A history lesson in its own right. An architectural masterpiece. Use your phone to educate yourself.
We were able to attend the Evensong. Beautiful music by the Choir of Westminster Abbey. Photographs were not allowed.Daily prayer has been offered in this church for over a thousand years.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
