The Houses of Parliament are situated along the banks of the Thames River. Home to the House of Lords and the House of Commons, at one point in history, the decisions made here directly affected one quarter of the world's population.
Buckingham Palace has been the official London residence of the Royal Family since Queen Victoria. This 661 room palace remained the dwelling of the monarchy throughout World War II, even after being hit seven times by German air strikes. The Royal Standard flies above the building when the Queen is at home.
Westminster Abbey was founded, according to legend, in the year 616. It is home to the crypts of some of the most famous British citizens, including a number of kings and queens, Charles Dickens and Sir Issac Newton. Additionally, all British monarchs have been crowed in the Abbey since William the Conqueror in 1066.
The Royal Parks in London include Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Green Park, and St. James's Park. Cycle and walking paths criss-cross each of these gardens and offer a refuge from traffic in the middle of the city. Music festivals, horseback riding, and paddle boats are found on a daily basis.
Big Ben actually refers to the 13 ton bell within the clock tower. London first heard the chimes on May 31, 1859. Today Big Ben and the clock tower are recognized around the world as a symbol of London.
Kensington Palace was first occupied by William III in the seventeenth century and remains to this day an official royal residence. Princess Diana lived here until her death in 1997.
The Albert Memorial is situated in Kensington Gardens directly to the north of the Royal Albert Hall. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert who died of typhoid in 1861.
Trafalgar Square is home to the National Portrait Gallery and Lord Nelson's Column. Lord Nelson was commanding the British fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar when he was killed by a French sniper. Today the square also hosts events, public gatherings, ceremonies, and festivals. It is against the law to feed the pigeons here.
