Westminster Abbey

Mr. Hunter and his cohorts stopped at Westminster Abbey but didn't feel like waiting in the super-long queue and paying the £16 entry fee.

The Abbey's clock tower, whose clocks
each have only one hand.

Some of the ten modern martyrs above the Great West Door.
See this BBC article about the unveiling of these statues.

The Royal Coat of Arms on the west facade.

May God grant to the living Grace
To the departed Rest
To the Church & the World Peace and Concord
And to us Sinners Eternal Life

The long line to get into Westminster Abbey.

A bit of color showing through the stained glass windows.
