Westminster Abbey - Brayden
On our first day in London, we toured Westminster Abbey. It was a great experience. From the outside the Abbey was impressive, but inside it was outstanding. There were many styles of architecture as additions were commonly added through history. There were monuments to many of Britain's great people throughout history. There were impressive religious and historical artifacts, including the coronation chair. This really helped me see how proud the people are of their history. The quality of their tributes were so impressive, it shows the importance the people feel towards their past historical figures. There were a few locations with memorials of World War II. I got the impression that British culture does not want to forget their past.
