Buckingham Palace   

Buckingham Palace, the Queens London residence and office, is known internationally and is steeped in history. Located in the City of Westminster, the palace is a setting for state occasions and royal hospitality. It has been a focus for the British people at times of national rejoicing and crisis.    

Originally known as Buckingham House, the building which forms the core of today's palace was a large town-house, built for the Duke of Buckingham in 1705 on a site which had been in private ownership for at least 150 years. It was subsequently acquired by George in 1761, as a private residence for Queen Charlotte, and known as "The Queen's House". During the 19th century, it was enlarged, principally by architects John Nash and Edward Blore, forming three wings around a central courtyard. Buckingham Palace finally became the official royal palace of the British monarch on the accession of Queen Victoria in 1837.    

Spencer House

Spencer House is a 18th century mansion, built in 1756, commissioned by John, the 1st Earl Spencer. The Earl needed a large Mansion House in London, to establish his status and position.  

The architect chosen by the Earl was John Vardy, who had studied under William Kent. Vardy is responsible for the outward appearance of the mansion that we see today.

 

The Albert Memorial   

The Albert Memorial situated in Kensington Gardens. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert, when he died of typhoid on 4th December 1861. The memorial was designed by Sir Gilbert Scott in the 'Gothic Revival'. It was then finally seated in 1875.  

The memorial is 176 feet (54m) tall, took over ten years to complete, and cost £120,000 (approx. £10,000 today).  

National Gallery  

The National Gallery contains the largest collection of western European paintings in the world. More than 2,300 paintings encompass the years between 1250 – 1900.  

The collection includes the work of artists such as Monet, Rembrandt, and Leonardo da Vinci. The entire collection is on display in four wings on the main floor where they are arranged by period: 1250-1500, 1500-1600, 1600-1700, and 1700-1900. Paintings are also displayed on a lower floor. To help the visitor manage the large number of paintings and galleries, various trails and audio guides are provided.

The is no official reference to the church on the site of St Martin's until Norman times, when in 1222 there was a dispute reported between William, Abbot of Westminster and Eustace , Bishop of London on the Bishop's authority over the church, the Archbishop of Canterbury chose the abbot and St Martins, then surrounded fields, seems to have been used by the monks of Westminster.
