1984 HH & Jean Westminster Abbey postcard -July 11

HH visited London in 1954, 1984, and 2014 and several other times in between. Here are Westminster Abbey postcards from the 1954 and 1984 visits.

 Westminster Abbey, London postcard mailed 1984.  Captioned: The Twin Towers at the west end of Westminster Abbey were designed by Hawksmoor, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren, and built 1738-39. The Abbey was founded by Edward the Confessor in 1050.  Our Kings and Queens have been crowned here since 1066.

Got here safely.  There's a Woolworth's nearby.  Meeting many nice people with similar interests – actually two groups of about 30 each.

The 6¾ hrs on the plan went quickly, but not too much sleep.  We liked our special order meals.  Meals here are good – buffet bkfst & lunch & sit down supper.  Hope to go to Church here on Sunday.  –– Jean & Harold
