What to expect

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

You will begin our visit at our meeting point, the Westminster Abbey entrance at 09:15 a. m. 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.
