Spent the early afternoon at Westminster Abbey. Saw the tomb/memorials of Sir Issac Newton (all of physics), James Clerk-Maxwell (electromagnetic theory), Faraday (magnetism), and PAM Dirac (quantum theory). A shame they didn’t have anything for Turing (or if I missed it, lemme know and I’ll go back).
Also saw memorials and tombs for Shakespeare (he’s buried at Stratford on Avon I think), Chaucer, Jane Austen, Keats, Shelley, …
Very nice place, highly recommend it.
Visit Sir Issac’s tomb (in person): Check.
See the other ones mentioned: Bonus points!
(FWIW: this is my fourth time in London, and I haven’t had the chance to get there until now)
Will put some pictures here soon.
