About Westminster Abbey

This beautiful Gothic landmark in the centre of London contains an incredible amount of history and has become one of the most recognisable buildings in the United Kingdom. It is the traditional coronation and burial sight of English and British monarchs and there have been a number of spectacular royal weddings within its walls.


Founded in the 10th Century, the Abbey has gone through a number of incantations and has been rebuilt and repaired more than once over the years. Visitors will find its atmospheric interior a wonder to behold and its position as one of the most important places of worship in the country makes it an essential insight into religion's role in the region.

Wonderful place - never fails to impress

by Ana Lourdes

One of my favourite attractions in London but due to the nature of the building many of the parts are quite difficult in a wheelchair. It's possible to visit the main bits but a lot will be out of reach. It's ok if you have limited mobility and can walk up a few steps.


Good transport Links

by David Cockerall

Westminster tube station is great - lifts to the platforms so it makes getting here very easy. One of the jewels of London.
