If These Walls Could Talk: Westminster Abbey
Westminster Abbey is steeped in history and especially royal history - at least 39 kings and queens have been crowned there, 17 of them are buried there. The Abbey is sprawling, lined with mini chapels, and corridors leading off in all directions. It is quite overwhelming. For instance ... the aisle is a 300 foot walk and Kate's been told not to rush down it.
The abbey was founded in 960 so you have more than a thousand years of history here at every turn there is a tomb or statue of someone buried there or a plaque in memory of someone buried elsewhere.
