Westminster Abbey!

During one of our busy days, Dr. Brennan led us to Westminster Abbey, where we got an audio tour of the church. Aryana and I explored the Abbey together while listening to the information provided through the audio guide. The Abbey had amazing architecture and rich history. We took our time walking through the church, admiring the many burial sites. Many royals have been buried in this church, along with numerous celebrated persons. Some noteworthy royals included King Henry V and all of the Tudors minus Henry VIII. Along with royalty, there are also well-known people such as Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking, and Charles Dickens. My favorite part of the Abbey was the burial site of Mary, Queen of Scots. On her tomb is a crowned Scottish lion and symbols that represent the French and English crown, as many would believe her to have been the rightful heir to all three thrones. Along with the burial sites, there were also many royal weddings that had taken place in the Abbey, including Prince William and Kate Middleton’s. Overall, Westminster Abbey was an amazing experience and I even wanted to go back for a second tour!
