Westminster Abbey and Saint Margaret, London - ENGLAND - UNESCO #426

Westminster is one of the most famous places in London - the Houses of Parliament (and Big Bem of course), the Westminster Abbey (yes, it was important even before the DaVinci Code) and Saint Margaret Church form a triangle unmissable for all the people visiting London. Eduardo was also there and he sent me this two beautiful postcards (I already have one from this UNESCO site, but now it's much more complete) - Thanks a lot Eduardo for this nice surprise. This postcards took 4 days to arrive!

Westminster Palace, rebuilt from the year 1840 on the site of important medieval remains, is a fine example of neo-Gothic architecture. The site – which also comprises the small medieval Church of Saint Margaret, built in Perpendicular Gothic style, and Westminster Abbey, where all the sovereigns since the 11th century have been crowned. The church of St Margaret, a charming perpendicular style construction, continues to be the parish church of the House of Commons and is an integral part of the complex.
