Studying Abroad for a whole semester in London at the University of Westminster and hopefully, I'll see all that I can while here!

Exploration of Westminster

Palace of Westminster, London, United Kingdom

The Palace of Westminster, also called the Houses of Parliament, is the meeting place of both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. It is located along the River Thames which is also home to the London Eye, just across Westminster Bridge. A notable part of the Palace is Big Ben, probably the most famous clock tower in the world and a staple of London. Neighboring is Westminster Abbey and just across St. James' Park is Buckingham Palace.

Museums with Friends

Tate Britain, Millbank, London, UK

We've been to many different museums all over London with my Art and Society class, I choose the location to be the Tate Britain because we've been back there many times to see different exhibits and the Tate Modern is very close by and run by the same organization. We've also been to the National Galley, the British Museum, the Imperial War Museum, a special photography gallery and a private-turn-public impressionism gallery with still more to come. For another class I went to Twinning's, a famous Tea distributor. The store in itself was like a museum for tea.
