St Margaret's ChurchStanding between Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, St Margaret's Church is commonly called "the parish church of the House of Commons". A fine 16th century building with notable medieval and modern stained glass, St Margaret's is also the burial place of the explorer Sir Walter Raleigh, who was executed in 1618 for treason, and the poet John Milton. The likes of Samuel Pepys, Sir Winston Churchill and Harold Macmillan were all married in St Margaret's Church, which forms a World Heritage Site together with the Palalce of Westminster and Westminster Abbey.
