We go on to Westminster Abby. It is a very stately and beautiful old church. There are lots of tourists here! Wow. We get audio guides that take us all around the Abby and provide so much information. It has so much history with everyone who has been here from William the Conqueror, several Henry’s, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, the present Queen Elizabeth, weddings, funerals and coronations.
We see the coronation chair that everyone has used since 1308
Each hour they stop for a minute of tradition of prayer.
The abbey was founded in 960 by the Benedictines. The original building has been added to, changed and expanded over the years to its present state.
We enjoyed the tour, everything we seen and learned. Sorry no pictures inside, you have to look on line for them.
We then go and check out some car rental prices, we plan on renting one for tomorrow to take our tour outside of the city.
It was a great day. We took the bus back home, our last long ride up front on the double decker bus. What a memory.
