It would be unthinkable to skip this magnificent place if you are in London. So, a few tips: if you’re going during tourist season, get timed-entry tickets online, or you’ll be stuck waiting for over an hour. As it is, even with pre-booked tickets, you...More

If you want to visit, either get front of line tickets or go early. We were there at 1030 am and there was a 90 minute wait. Very magestic and definitely awestruck. Depending how much time you have in London, you definately need to plan...More

Not worth the bother. I mean after standing in line for 45 minutes or more and paying your $22 (per couple) to enter, they are very strict about not taking photos inside. I mean who pays $22 and has nothing to show for it? There...More

The Abbey is one of the best attractions in London - encompassing 1000+ years of history in one building! The newest addition, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Gallery, is a stunning display of artifacts and historical documents!

Westminster Abbey is well worth the entry fee and use the free guide. The walls themselves talk to you and the history of much of feudal UK is here. Also some pretty interesting features and a really uncomfortable Coronation Throne.

We bought our tickets on the internet three days before we went. We were lucky, the queue was 60 minutes long! Anyway, the Abbey is gorgeous and filled with history.

Cannot help but be affected by the tombs and memorials of so many who are so famous. From royalty to the greats of literature and science. Reminded me of Sante Croce church in Florence where once again you are surrounded by so many famous names.

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
