westminster abbey

Another shot from last night's drive through London. This is Westminster Abbey, even this time of night there are tourists outside taking photos and I guess that even though I was born here, technically speaking, I am now a tourist too. A shrine was erected here 1400 years ago and the Abbey was built about 1000 years ago. This part of the Abbey, the Western Entrance, is relatively a modern addition dating back about 300 years. The building is important in English history; all the English Monarchs have been crowned here since 1066 and most of them are buried here.
