Gavin with a "G" - A London Gem!
"My daughter and I had the extreme pleasure of experiencing London with the awesome Gavin! We “hit” Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and Borough Market, and Gavin could not have been more engaging and informative. The true highlight of our visit to London was our time learning and laughing with Gavin."
TripAdvisor: Review of Highlights of Westminster
Let me take you on a whirlwind tour through 1000 years of British history. Westminster Abbey is a tour-de-force containing over 1000 years of English and British history.
This spectacular Medieval gothic church has hosted every coronation from 1066 with William the Conqueror to the House of Windsor. It has also witnessed seventeen royal weddings including William and Kate, and most recently the funeral of our beloved Queen, Elizabeth II. It is also the burial place of many royals and notables including feuding Tudor siblings, writers such as Geoffrey Chaucer, Rudyard Kipling, and Charles Dickens, scientists Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking, and Charles Darwin and the tomb of the Unknown Warrior.
