Walk through 1,000 years of British history in a visit to the country’s national church.
The site of coronations, royal weddings (including William and Kate in 2011) and the burial place of kings, Westminster Abbey is a ‘must see’ destination for any visitor to London.
You can see the centuries-old Coronation Chair, used for every coronation since 1308, visit the tombs of Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots, hear about the famous men and women commemorated in Poets’ Corner, and experience the sublime architecture of the Henry VII chapel. There is also a mosaic that predicts when the world will end, and the oldest door in the UK.
Westminster Abbey is open for visits Monday to Saturday. 0930-1530. Contact me if you would like a private tour.
