The district of Westminster boasts two of the capital's most famous and spectacular buildings: Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster, whose clock tower, housing the massive 13-ton bell called Big Ben, is instantly identifiable as a symbol of London. The original palace was home to generations of royals until 1512. The House of Lords, also based at the palace, remained there, to be joined by the Commons in 1547, bringing the Houses of Parliament together in the location they still occupy today. The palace was almost completely destroyed by fire in 1834 and was rebuilt in magnificent Gothic Revival style over 30 years. The 14th Century Jewel Tower, which escaped the fire, now hosts an exhibition about Parliamentary history. Westminster Abbey dates back to 1066, although the present building, in all its stunning Gothic splendour, was begun in the mid-1200s. Some 17 monarchs are buried here. So, notably, are many of the literary giants commemorated in Poets' Corner. Westminster School, College Garden, Chapter House and Museum, and St Margaret's Church, serving the House of Commons, are within the Abbey's precincts. Not far away, and also worth visiting, is the interactive exhibition at The Churchill Museum and Cabinet War Rooms.
