At first home of Benedictine monks, the coronation church since 1066 and the final resting place of 17 monarchs.

Westminster Abbey is one of London's most famous landmarks and definitely something you don't want to miss. You can buy audio guides which make the experience a lot more interesting and informative. The abbey is spectacular inside and out and filled with history. I wouldn't really recommend for families with young children who might miss the greater significance, but still a great and affordable place to visit!

The history that has occurred here should be reason enough to visits. It's not just where the Royal Wedding happened, it's where Isaac Newton is buried and where the Tomb of the unknown soldier is located. There's no way you can come to London and not visit here.

I make a point to visit Westminster Abbey each time I get to London. There's just a special feeling there. More than a religious experience, it's just one of the great witnesses in the history of a greatnation.

This is definitely an attraction you should find some time to visit. A mobil audioplayer to get all the information you need, then you are set for a good time, and lots of information.
