Visited this historic place a few days ago. An architectural wonder where British Monarchs are crowned and buried. Many other dignataries , including generals, politicians and men of letters have also been recognised and given a place of honour within the Abbey. A huge complex...More

We still enjoyed checking it out. Very historical. The architecture was great to see, the memorials for those who passed away. Reading about them from hundreds of years ago

Take the tour. Not the digital one but the one where you have a guide. You get to go into so many other places that the regular people don't get to go into. We walked around a bit before the tour and then had the...More

My wife and I had just finished hearing Sunday Mass at Westminster Cathedral this morning and were walking back towards Westminster Bridge. We realised a service was in progress at Westminster Abbey and decided to attend it. Most of the service was already over but...More

You can't visit London without seeing Westminster Abbey. Unreal history. Great to listen to the audio commentary.

I loved walking through this church. Absolutely breathtaking! We went in the afternoon and then stayed for the Evensong. Such a cool experience!

The building has very detailed stonework and it is a historic place for royal weddings and funerals, coronations, baptizing etc.

All the history you could ever want at one location. Royalty, poets, and more. A church first and foremost, but you really want to take your time here. You could cover 500 years of history in just a couple hours. Beautiful both inside and out.

I was so excited to go into the Abbey I got goosebumps. The feeling of walking through the same doors that so many people in history overwhelmed me. Don't expect to take pictures while inside. It won't happen.

We visited Westminster Abbey I have been three times now and it still has so many surprises for me. It was my wife's first time she loved it.

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

Sounds wonderful- Can you tell me if the tour was the regular one offered by the Abby, or did you book it on Viator or with some other group? Thank you.

This is not a paid tour. It is free for the public. You just need to join the line to attend the service around 4 pm or so on Thursdays. Once you are inside you can take a place to sit and look around you when the service is... More
Should tickets be purchased in advance? Is it acceptable to purchase via smartphone without access to a printer?

You do not have to purchase in advance. The line moves quickly. I used the London Pass so it was prepaid.
We are visiting the Abbey on 14 August and plan to be there at 8.30 to line up. We have the London Pass. Yes, we've checked, and it works for us. Will there be much of a crowd then and does the LP hold you up?

That arrival time should serve you well. The pass doesn't get you early entry, but they simply scan the pass and it does not hold you up. Enjoy!
