So magnificent, breath taking beauty with the history hovers above . My excitement was
So deep. Sorry if I use these festive words, I was honestly so thrilled.
The only thing that bothered me was the price of the ticket. Coming with several people, it was hard reality...

A thousand years of history in the blink of an eye! You will wonder, like so many of London's architectural gems, how such intricate work could be created all those years ago.
I have visited many times and never fail to be amazed at the skill of the Artisans.

In London for the Remembrance Parade. Called into the gardens to the rear/side of the Abbey. Such a beautiful and poignant sight to behold, the thousands of poppy crosses, commemorating the fallen of WW1. Very emotional. Visited at last light and very moving experience.

Taking some visiting friends on a whistle stop city trip, Westminster Abbey is a must see for Royal historians, and those interested in architecture. Don't think you can realistically do the Abbey in an hour
Once inside enjoy the tranquility, view the last resting place of over a dozen British monarchs and don't forget to look up.
Helpful knowledgeable advice around too.
There's also a good cafe/ lunch stop in the abbey too to recharge the batteries.
Take time and enjoy.

The churches and abbeys throughout London are so beautiful and historical! Westminster is a 3-4 block complex well worth visiting and walking around......just huge and beautiful with so much rich history!

Simply amazing place to visit! Everyone you read about in British history is here, except Henry viii who is in Windsor Castle. If you miss out on visiting here you will be disappointed when you realize all the history surrounding Westminster.

If you hate lines as I do, I suggest prepaying for tickets. If not, do not be intimidated by the line. We waited about 30 minutes to get in, it goes by very quickly. Audio guides are included I believe...
I’m going to try and not write an essay but in a nutshell: try not to be overwhelmed. This church is the heart of the nation. This is where Kings and Queens have been coronated, married and buried ( literally beneath your feet as slabs will read or their monuments will erected). But not just the royal are interred here. The church is divided into sections for prominent figures, royalty, religious figures and those who contributed to the nation. A high point for me was the poets corner. Here you’ll see a tribute to Shakespeare and the resting place of Chaucer and Lord Byron. It’s hard not to be moved to tears by the history in this cathedral.

We visited Westminster Abbey with London Walks, which was worth it because you get a guide and immediate entrance. The Abbey has lovely architecture and is definitely worth a visit. The guide spoke a lot about British royalty, coronations, funerals, who is buried there, etc., a bit too much of the British royalty bit for my taste (if I were a Brit I'd be a republican), but I know a lot of people are enchanted and enamored with royalty. We also learned about other famous people who are either buried there or memorialized there. For me, the most moving - especially given that it was just a few days before 100 years since the WWI armistice, was the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and I also always enjoy hearing about Winston Churchill, a true hero of the Western World.

Westminster Abbey is a stunning building reeking of history. To avoid the long queues, try and get to it early in the morning. The lines do move fairly quickly.
The Jubilee Galleries are absolutely spectacular.They are high above the Abbey floor and you get to see some amazing views. There is a lift for those who cannot climb the gentle flight of stairs and I cannot recommend it more highly.

The line to enter was long but moved right along. Beautiful church with lots of history. It is worth paying the small amount to go to the top of the church.
