Holiday Photos 12 ... Westminster

Westminster is the part of London that everyone hears about - Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, etc.

However many times I go there, I still love going back.  My college in the first year was near here, and a lot of memories came flooding back as I saw the general views again.

Looking across Parliament Square to Big Ben (well, technically it's The Elizabeth Tower)

St Margarets - I went in there, but photography is not permitted.

The West Door of Westminster Abbey.  I didn't go in as it's expensive and I used to go regularily when I was at college ... I will go back again one day.

Most people know the Abbey, but don't know about Westminster Cathedral.  This is the #1 Catholic Church in England
