Westminster Abbey Westminster is now a political center of London, but until the 11th century it was a sacred place. King Edward the Confessor decided to build a great abbey church here. It was constructed in 1065, but a week later the King died and was buried in the abbey. His tomb became a popular place of pilgrimage.
The Abbey contains many royal tombs, memorials to eminent men and women. But the most popular ones are those to writers, actors and musicians . Among them are Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy, Rudyard Kipling and others. Nearly all English kings and queens have been crowned in Westminster Abbey.
ST.PAUL’S CATHEDRAL It has always dominated the center of London. This is the third cathedral with this name which London has had. It stands at the top of Ludgate Hill where a Christian church has stood since the 7th century. Bilding of the Cathedral started in 1675 and was not finished until 1709.
For 35 years the building of St. Paul's Cathedral went on by Wren. You can climb 263 steps to the Whispering Gallery, above the library, which runs round the dome. It is called this because if someone whispers something close to the wall on the other side can hear that was said.
30 St Mary Axe It is a skyscraper in London's financial district, the City of London, completed in December 2003 and opened at the end of May 2004. With 41 floors, the tower is 180 metres (591 ft) tall. The building has become an iconic symbol of London and is one of the city's most widely recognised examples of modern architecture.
