Some twelve years since my last visit, but memories are made of this.

Definitely venture within if:

- you are interested in the monarchy or have regard for architecture or

- you desire to see the final resting places of royalty, poets, writers, scientists (from Darwin to Dickens interred here) etc ..because then, "can't miss" and even a steep fee, I would find worth it.

"Living history" is a great term for...more

The line up was crazy when we arrived but luckily it moves...more

One of the most historically significant churches in the world, Westminster Abbey has been the site of many British monarch's coronation, wedding, and burials. Maybe that is why the admission price is so high: £20 per adult.

While the Gothic-style architecture was certainly impressive, it was not as unique as other impressive Gothic-style churches in Europe that are free to enter like the...more
