Westminster Abbey has undergone many changes and restorations over the years, but is without question one of London's must-see sights. You can easily spend several hours in this time capsue of British history.

The church's majestic high alter was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and is complete with a Last Supper mosaic is by Antonio Salviati. See the high-backed timber coronation chair commisioned by King Edward in 1296 and has been used by every British monarch since the 14th century for the coronation. Literature buffs will lose themselves among the names of the literary greats buried or commemorated here.

Pay your respects to several British monarchs including Queen Elizabeth I and her sister, known as Bloody Mary as well as to the unknown warrior who passed in the battlefield of World War I.
