The word Westminster means ‘West Abbey’, which reflects its position in the city of London. Most English rulers were not only crowned here, but were married in Westminster Abbey. The most recent was the wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine Middleton (who can forget the princess’s dress?). I cannot imagine a more romantic place to visit than where the future monarch and his wife got married.
