Discover the secrets and history of Westminster Abbey, a 700-year-old church in the heart of London, where all the coronations of British monarchs have taken place since the eleventh century and several royal weddings have been held. It is also the burial ground of numerous British historical figures.
What to expect?
Visiting Westminster Abbey is a must for all travelers that wish to understand the history of Britain. The church welcomes over one million visitors each year who are curious to explore the religious edifice where every British monarch has been coronated since 1066 and where several royal weddings have taken place. In the past decade, Princess Diana’s funeral was held in the Abbey and Prince William and Kate Middleton said "I do" before the eyes of thousands of people.
You’ll admire the building’s impressive Gothic structure and visit Lady Chapel, one of the Abbey’s most impressive chapels. You’ll also be able to appreciate The Coronation Chair up close, which has been used at every coronation ceremony since 1308.
Westminster Abbey is also famous for housing the tombs of renowned historical figures, including British and English monarchs, statesmen, writers, poets and scientists. In the Poet’s Corner you’ll find the tombs of great literary artists such as Charles Dickens, Geoffrey Chaucer and Rudyard Kipling. There is also a sanctuary dedicated to Emily Brontë, T.S. Eliot, Oscar Wilde and Jane Austen, among others.
