"Did you know, Big Ben does not refer to the clock as a whole, but just to its bell? The tower is actually named Elizabeth Tower!"

When you think of the history and pageantry that has happened at Westminster Abbey, it gives you goosebumps!

Jamie Newson-Love

Reminiscent of a charming village green, I love eating lunch in picturesque Vincent Square.

Hayley Thomas

The view from the tower at Westminster Cathedral is amazing, it's really worth the trip up there.
