The British Museum
4.7/5
2,195 Reviews
Museum
The British Museum is one of the three greatest museums in the world. It features a rich collection of rare works. The museum was the first to display the Rosetta Stone in its Egyptian Hall. The stone stele is inscribed with a decree in three different languages, and was the invaluable key to understanding language and culture in ancient Egypt. In addition, there are more than 23,000 Chinese relics housed here, the likes of which are rare even in Beijing’s Forbidden City or the National Palace Museum in Taipei.
Westminster Abbey
4.6/5
776 Reviews
Church
Westminster Abbey is also called the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster. Its status as a Church of England “Royal Peculiar” means it is used exclusively by the British royal family. No other church in England is as important and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since 1066, nearly all important royal ceremonies have been held here. It served as the wedding venue for Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton. Furthermore, the royal tombs of England are located here. Apart from members of the royal family, many important historical figures such as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill and, most recently, Stephen Hawking are also buried here.
Buckingham Palace
4.6/5
1,540 Reviews
Palace
Buckingham Palace has been the official residence of the British royal family since the 19th century. Currently, it is the London location in which the Queen spends most of her time. The palace is splendid both inside and outside. Some of the more than 600 rooms in the palace include the Throne Room, White Drawing Room, Ballroom and Picture Gallery. At the gates of Buckingham Palace, the Changing the Guard (or Guard Mounting) ceremony by the Queen's Guard takes place at 11 a.m. most days of the week. It attracts and interests tourists from around the world. Marching with great pomp and precision to military music and shouted orders, the guards—dressed in traditional red coats and bearskin hats—do a drill performance and salute.

Historical Architecture
Located on a small hill on the south bank of the Thames and built by William I, Windsor Castle was designed to protect ships and the royal family on the Thames.

The Upper Ward comprises rooms such as the 13th-century Queen's Ballroom and the banquet hall where the British Royal Family holds major activities. The Round Tower is in the Middle Ward surrounded by a rose garden, where the royal family's documents and collected photographs are preserved. St. George's Chapel in the Lower Ward is luxurious Gothic architecture and a classic building in Windsor Castle.
