This is my third visit to Westminster Abbey and certainly wouldn't be my last. I was there a day after Stephen Hawking's body was interred there, and as I was in London on business at the time, I had to pay my respects to him....More

Beautiful English Gothic architecture with the final resting places of many prominent citizens. The informative audio tour is included with admission.

Crowds can get quite large and it closes early on some days. We got there early and had plenty of time to roam about before it started getting too crowded

We scheduled our trip there and I made sure to check closures and I even Emailed the staff and was told the day we scheduled they were open. Got there at 11am and they were closing in an hour! Sad!

We started our visit waiting for our guide near the new David Hockney stained glass window. Beautiful. The guide showed us through the massive church, showing us important royal graves and memorials. I was thrilled to see the new memorial to Stephen Hawking. The new...More

OK, you will want to see the Houses of Parliament from the outside at least. So you will be by the Abbey. Do not walk past. A history lesson in its own right. An architectural masterpiece. Use your phone to educate yourself.

We were asked to please remain in the church if we entered since there was a service in progress. We stayed with pleasure, it was beautiful and an honor to be blessed in this institution.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

We booked a bus tour that hit lots of tourist spots. They also get special "cut the line" privileges. We felt so special & didn't waste any time or leg fatigue standing in any lines. Well worth it!
