Westminster Abbey (London) Reviews
Newest Review: ... little room to walk around, especially when it's very busy. There are many interesting places in Westminster Abbey like Poet's Corner. There were buried and commemorated famous writers such as Charles Dickens and Tennyson. The Lady Chapel is a breath of fresh air in terms of space and light in comparison to the various chapels of the vessel borders. You will also find a chapel for the Royal Air Force. I noticed that a lot anyway of military memorials in the church. Westminster Abbey is not only a tourist attraction but also a church. For example every hour they ask for a few minutes of silence. At that time is often a prayer and you have the... more

General Recently I went to London a few days. During my visit I went to various museums and other cultural sites. One of these places was Westminster Abbey. Westminster Abbey is almost always used when there is something special with the English royal family so it seemed nice to go there once. Location Westminster Abbey is on the Dean's Yard at number 20 in London. In the immediate vicinity of WA are several metro and bus stops. The nearest subway stops are Westminster and St James's Park. WA is close to the House of Parliament and Big Ben. It is not advisable to use the car to go as there is little parking in the area. The ... Read the complete review

Yes, the abbey is slightly expensive at £15 for adults and £12 for students. However, its an absolutely brilliant experience. My girlfriend and I went on the Verger Tour around the Abbey (it cost £3 more) and it was one of the most enjoyable things we did on our whole holiday. The tour lasted around 90 minutes and thoroughly explained all the details of the abbey - its history, and the people inside it. The verger was intelligent, eloquent, friendly and immensely helpful. People on the verger tour access one or two areas of the Abbey that other people are unable to get to unless they are on a verger tour (makes you feel a bit special ha ha), and every room, memorial and .

Slip back in time. Hear the trumpets, see the pomp and ceremony today, the 25th of December, 1066. You are lucky enough to be the recipient of an invitation to William the Conqueror's coronation and here you are witnessing the first monarch to walk down the stone floor to his coronation. You are among his subjects watching in awe, with hopes and aspirations for a honest and wise reign. Move forward to 2006 and now you are in the same magnificent building which has endured the test of time. You may not be able to stand in awe today, but I did recently and immediately mused about all those feet which traversed these hallowed stones before me. ... Read the complete review

No i'm not kidding, this actually is my favourite place in the world! I love the Abbey. I fell in love with it on a school trip around 12 years ago and I still think it is remarkable. This place has so much history under one roof and the fact that kings and queens walked where we do in the place amazes me. HISTORY: The Abbey that we see today was begun by Henry III in the 13th century. There had been a religious foundation on the site since the 7th century. The first Abbey was built by Edward the Confessor in the 11th century. Edward was buried in the Abbey and his successor, William the Conqueror was crowned in the building in 1066. Henry III ...
