For his scientific achievements, Charles Darwin was buried at Westminster Abbey. Not far away from other legendary scientists such as John Herschel and Issac Newton.

I remember so vividly seeing Newton's and Darwin's graves when I visited Westminster Abbey so long ago. It was one of the highlights of my only trip to Europe (so far!). Have a good one!
