General Information

Westminster Abbey is a Gothic abbey church in Westminster, London. It is a notable British religious building, as it is the place for royal coronations. The church is a Church of England place of worship and is directly responsible to the sovereign.

A church was believed to have been opened on the site in 1060, but the current church wasn't built until 1245; after being ordered by King Henry III. The building has been redeveloped and extended in the years since. The Abbey is known for hosting royal weddings, most recently the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

Maybe a bit expensive

Rated:

Well worth the visited if your interested in the history of the Royal Family of the UK as this seems to be there main place for Royal events of weddings and the like. But thought the tour was just a bit expensive even if the guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Royal weddings

Rated:

Visited the abbey as it is where many UK Royals have been married. The tour of the abbey is well worth the time and the money, which was 22£. The tour guide gave in depth insight and was very friendly.
