He notes the river flowing through its midst, as well as the city fort called the Tower, which is built of black stone and is very strong. In it are numerous armouries. London is also home to numerous edifices of brick, while the churches, both old and new, are generally constructed of stone. Amongst them is St. Paul's Cathedral, renowned for its size and beauty. Another noteworthy building is Westminster Abbey, which was built by a king of Denmark.
