PowerPoint Presentation: Founded by Edward the Confessor in 1050, the Abbey was a monastery for a long time. There are memorials to eminent men and women. But the most popular ones are those to writers, actors and musicians in Poets’ Corner. PowerPoint Presentation: N E L S O N’ S 2 Answer C O L U M N Name the monument in the middle of Trafalgar Square PowerPoint Presentation: Raised in 1843 and now one of London’s best-loved monuments, commemorates the one-armed, one-eyed admiral who defeated Napoleon at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, but paid for it with his life. PowerPoint Presentation: B U C K I N G H A M 3 Answer P A L A C E Name the Queen’s London residence PowerPoint Presentation: Built in 1705 as Buckingham House for the duke of the same name, this palace became the official London home of the British Royal family.

PowerPoint Presentation: T H E R T O W E 4 Answer O F L O N D O N Name an ancient fortress and a prison in the City of London PowerPoint Presentation: Through the centuries, the Tower of London has been a citadel, a palace, a prison for offenders against the State, the home of the Mint, the treasury for the Crown Jewels, a menagerie, and the first royal observatory.

PowerPoint Presentation: R T O W E 6 Answer B R I D G E Name a bridge that crosses the River Thames in London PowerPoint Presentation: Perhaps second only to Big Ben as London’s most recognizable symbol, Tower Bridge doesn’t disappoint up close.

PowerPoint Presentation: 9 Answer G L O B E S H A K E S P E A R E’ S Name the theatre where Shakespeare’s plays were first performed PowerPoint Presentation: The building is a wooden O without a roof over the central stage area, and although there are covered wooden bench seats in tiers around the stage, many people like to do as the 17 th - century “groundlings” did, and stand in front of the stage, shouting and heckling.
