20 Deans Yd, Westminster, London SW1P 3PA, UK
No public tours that day, but they had full Catholic services so attended on around noon. Absolutely amazing inside, rich with history and tradition. Ceilings are incredibly high. The organ and choir resonate beautifully within the building, it gives you the chills. Full communion and a nice sermon. You must go here, it is mind-blowing.
Westminster Abbey is one of the most beautiful historical sites situated in the heart of London, highly recommend a visit. Steeped in more than a thousand years of history, Westminster Abbey is the final resting place of seventeen monarchs. The present building which dates mainly from the reign of King Henry III, is one of the most important Gothic buildings in the country, with the medieval shrine of an Anglo-Saxon saint still at its heart. I would highly recommend a visit 👍
I can't even explain how surreal this experience was. The Abbey is beautiful and overwhelming. I saw where Sir Issac Newton, Charles Darwin, Stephen Hawking, Jane Austen, Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Mary I, Queen Mary of Scots and so many more of my favorite people are buried. We went all out and bought the verger tour, which is completely worth the 7 pounds as well as the tickets for the web galleries. What a wonderful day. And it is even more beautiful at night.
One of the top tourist attractions in London. The Abbey has a rich history. There are a lot of people buried inside the abbey, including Kings of England, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and many others. Photos are not allowed inside the Abbey. Start early as the lines can be quite long.
Westminster Abbey is the equal of other great UK and European abbeys and cathedrals. Schedule an afternoon visit that ends with joining the queue for evensong just before 5pm. The 45 minute ceremony gives a glimpse into medieval Christian beliefs and a chance to hear an unmatched choral performance by the Abby choir.
