Your tour starts from Westminster Abbey, perhaps the most beautiful early Gothic building in Great Britain and still used for daily worship and royal functions. The Abbey, a royal mausoleum for many centuries, was used from 1066 after the coronation of William I to crown all kings and queens of England, except two. Rebuilt in 1220 in the then new Gothic style, inside is the Henry VII Chapel (1503-19) is one of the most beautiful examples of the perpendicular Gothic.

Enter Trafalgar Square, then cross to the National Gallery. With Nelson's Column in the center, you can see through the
Admiralty Arch, the Mall which leads to Buckingham Palace. The National Gallery opened in 1838 to house one of Europe's greatest collections of Old Master's paintings.
