Kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers; poets, priests, heroes and villains - the Abbey is a must-see living pageant of British history.
Every year, the Abbey welcomes over one million visitors who want to explore this wonderful 700-year-old building - the coronation church of England. Audio guides are available in eleven languages or there is the highly-popular verger-led tour.
Dating back to between the 13th and 16th centuries, Westminster Abbey contains the tombs of kings, queens and countless famous public figures; has hosted every Coronation since 1066; and still remains a place for daily worship.
Other highlights include Poets' Corner, the magnificent medieval Lady Chapel and funeral effigies of the likes of Edward III, Henry VII and Charles II.
