What to expect

Don't miss out on visiting the Westminster Abbey, one of London's famous landmarks and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1987. Marvel at the architectural designs, learn all the secrets of the Abbey from a professional expert guide and discover the corners of this famous building.

Its construction dates back to 1045 when King Edward the Confessor ordered its construction. What you'll see today, dates from 1245 to 1517 when the original Romanesque style was replaced by the Gothic, after the remodeling was ordered by Henry III.

Begin your visit by meeting your expert guide at the Westminster Abbey entrance. Your guide will take you through the corners of this famous building, a traditional site for the wreaths and burials of the English monarchs and, later, the British monarchs.

Since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066, all English monarchs have been crowned at the Abbey, with the exception of Joan I and Edward V.

You will see the numerous tombs of various members of the royal family, aristocrats and illustrious personalities such as scientists and poets, including the tombs of Charles Dickens, Geoffrey Chaucer and Rudyard Kipling.

In recent years, the Abbey has hosted Princess Diana’s funeral and Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding. Many historical events have taken place at the Abbey so don't miss the chance to revisit them.
