We enjoyed our time at Westminster Abbey. We highly recommend the guided tour. It costs 5 pounds more, but it gives you access/information to additional sections. Totally worth it...plus you don't need to walk around with a headset. Lunch in the Cafe was good as...More

We visited Westminster Abbey this week, and the grounds are poignantly covered in remembrance poppies, truly beautiful. Queueing for bag checks, and tickets, but well worth it for the beauty that awaits you. Audio devices available for those who need them. NO photography allowed, but...More

Although the cost of entry is high there is plenty to see and although the free audio guide has plenty of excellent content, it is somewhat difficult to spot the numbers as you walk around. Be aware that there is an additional charge to view...More

There are not enough hours in the day to see and read all of the memorials and tombs in the gorgeous Westminster Abbey. But definitely get to Elizabeth I and Mary I's tomb, as well as Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. Great for Tudorphiles!

I made a special visit to see the Jubilee Galleries. They were not really worth the extra £5 on top of the already hefty admission price. Many of the exhibits were previously on display in the undercroft, they were not well labelled. At least it...More

Absolutely beautiful. Not sure how to describe it but I did sneak a couple photos. The Poppy display at this time of year got our hearts. This place is so full of wonderful history - really a must-see.

The Abbey is truly magnificent in many ways and some in my group found the extra £5 for the verger tour worthwhile as you get a more personalised account and we were taken around the normally inaccessible Edward the Confessor shrine. The statuary was stunning,...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
