One of my absolute favourites!! We have visited as tourists and as worshipers. It is well worth the visit.......majestic!!! The holy communion services are lovely. The services outside of the tourist visiting hours are the most special.

I was gob-smacked when faced with this in real life. I can literally hear it talking to me about all the important and historic going-on's it played host to. Such a historically significant building in ye olde England!

There is so much inside Westminster Abbey. It takes time to absorb it all, and I'm sure I missed some things. It also is a paid admission, but depending on how long you stay, it is included in the London Pass. We had a lot...More

We attended an evensong service in order to see the church for free. It was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed the service. I would recommend getting there 30 minutes before the service to be seated directly next to the choir!

Though this attraction didn't hold a lot if interested for me, it was definitely worth going. The sheer number of notables buried or memorialized here is staggering. Stephen Hawking took me by surprise. Lots and lots of history here. The audio guides let you move...More

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
