This past weekend I ventured on the tube to see Big Ben. This was my main destination, but clearly I got more than a little sidetracked. While Big Ben is very beautiful, the architecture of Westminster Abbey caught my attention and wouldn't let go.
I actually came up on the back of Westminster Abbey and the photo below was what first piqued my interest. I believe it is The Chapter House and Pyx Chamber.
I walked down the path beside the abbey that brought me to the front and found more beautiful architecture. I simply can not get over how stunning and magical the abbeys and churches and cathedrals are here. I love the rich history that lends to the very gothic style.
Westminster Abbey has been the location of every royal coronation since 1066 as well as 16 Royal weddings. It is also the resting place for 17 monarchs. Quite obviously Westiminster Abbey has a rich and important history in London and the United Kingdom.
Tickets for adults are £20 per person, and I didn't go inside because I was running a little short on time. But again, somewhere I would love to go back to and explore thoroughly. I am constantly astounded by the beauty of this city. I can't wait to see more, do more. I already have a running list of sights that I want to see next.
Until next time,
All my love.
