Westminster Palace, Westminster Abbey & St. Margaret's Church
are recognised as a World Heritage Site in London, England. These are some of the most iconic buildings in the United Kingdom, and possess great historic and symbolic significance to the country.
Westminster Palace, or officially the Palace of Westminster, is the location of the Houses of Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, comprising the House of Lords and the House of Commons. It has been built, damaged and rebuilt several times over the centuries. What we see today was mostly built in the 1840's, with extensive repair carried out after the World War II bombings of 1941.
The Westminster Abbey, or officially the Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, is a Gothic Church to the west of the Palace of Westminster. It is the traditional venue for the coronation and burial of English monarch, and later British monarch, as well as the monarchs of the Commonwealth Realms. It was briefly a cathedral, from 1546 to 1656.

St. Margaret's Church is an Anglican church within the grounds of Westminster Abbey. It serves as the parish church of the House of Commons of the United Kingdom, and is dedicated to Margaret of Antioch, recognised as a saint by the Roman Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox churches. The church was founded by Benedictine monks in the 12th century. The present structure dates to the 15th century, with additions and modifications carried out in the subsequent centuries.
Westminster Palace, Westminster Abbey & St. Margaret's Church was inscribed as a World Heritage Site during the 11th session of the World Heritage Committee which met in Headquarters in Paris, France, on on 7 - 11 December, 1987.
