- House of Parliament
- Westminster Abbey
- The Queens Guards
- Trafalgar Square
The area has been the seat of the government of England for almost a thousand years.
“Kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers; poets, priests, heroes and villains - the Abbey is a must-see living display of British history.”
Construction of the present church begun in 1245 by King Henry III, yet since 1066, when King Harold and William the Conqueror were crowned, the coronations of English and British monarchs have been held here.
Since 1100, there have been at least 16 royal weddings at the abbey.
This is really a wonderful piece of history and fantastic to photograph!
The Queens Guards:
Come and see the colors, listen to the music and be part of the fun as the soldier’s parade!
The Queen's Guard and Queen's Life Guard are the names given to legations of infantry and cavalry soldiers charged with guarding the official royal residences in London.
The British Army has regiments of both Horse Guards and Foot Guards predating the English Restoration since 1660. Contrary to popular belief, they are not purely ceremonial and are fully operational soldiers.
This fun and visually stunning location is home to Nelson's Column, which is guarded by four lion statues at its base. There are a number of statues and sculptures in the square, with one plinth displaying changing pieces of contemporary art.
The fountains grand and make for both technically challenging and photographically impressive pictures!
