History collides with pretty much everything in London.

Surprisingly, these are the palace's official public rooms, which are used for visits and state functions. They are ornately decorated with Royal Collection treasures, Old Masters paintings, expensive sculptures, and elegant English and French furniture. As a result, you should take your time admiring these items.
Take in Westminster Abbey, a church with some of the richest history of the city. It has been home to every English coronation since William the Conqueror in 1066. It has also been home to 16 royal weddings as far back as King Henry I in 1100 and as recent as Prince William in 2011.
Finally lay your eyes on the world famous Big Ben, a magnificent clock added to the House of Parliament after a fire in 1834, that everybody knows about but not everybody gets the privilege of seeing.
