Introducing Westminster Abbey...
Kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers; poets, priests, heroes and villains - the Abbey is a must-see living pageant of British history. Every year Westminster Abbey welcomes over one million visitors who want to explore this wonderful 700-year-old building. Thousands more join us for worship at our daily services. The Abbey is in the heart of London. Once inside audio guides are available in eight languages or there is the highly-popular verger-led tour. Westminster Abbey is the resting place and memorial for some of the most renowned citizens from the last 1000 years in British history. The list includes Elizabeth I, Charles II, Geoffrey Chaucer and Sir Isaac Newton. It also remains today as a working church, holding regular services, and as the site of coronations and burials for the English Monarchs.
