Westminster Abbey

Highly recommended
Necropolis of sovereigns, pantheon of national glories, masterpiece of Gothic art, Westminster Abbey's twin towers push up into the London sky and have looked down for centuries on the setting of great royal ceremonies. Its dimensions are impressive but nevertheless you'll be charmed to discover its various parts; the chapels of Henry VII and Edward the Confessor, the octagonal capitulary room and the moving Poets' corner in honour of famous writers.
