Westminster Abbey is one of the country’s most important religious buildings.
The Westminster Abbey history runs wide and deep, as all coronations of British and English monarchs took place at the church, ever since William the Conqueror in 1066 AD.
While being a treasure trove of historical artefacts and information, as well as an architectural work of art, the church also plays an important role in British culture. From holding daily worship and services, to being the venue for many royal weddings, this English landmark is also the burial and memorial site of writers, actors, scientists, thinkers, and other famous and historically significant figures.
You could listen to the world-famous choir, but also view the tombs of Charles Dickens, Isaac Newton and many kings and queens of England alike!
Westminster Abbey is a working church with hourly prayer and daily services. Please be considerate towards this!
