Westminster Abbey - Review
Close to the Palace of Westminster is the Westminster Abbey. This Gothic Church is spectacular in every way. The beautiful and intricate architecture makes it a marvelous sight. But the solemn purpose of the abbey makes it a site of unparalleled importance in world history.
Several famous personalities have been buried or memorialized there. It is a beautiful church but has tremendous importance from the point of view of the people who have been immortalized there.
Of you do get a chance to visit it, you will be walking the ground where stalwarts like Sir Isaac Newton, Alfred Tennyson, Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin and many others have found their final resting place. Many others like Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde and William Shakespeare have been memorialized in the Abbey.
Usually, reserved for kings and royalty or famous personalities it also holds some unique tombs. One of them is The Grave of the “unknown warrior” that represents the countless soldiers who lost their life in the war. This amazing legacy makes this site a must-see place for the London tourist.

Westminster Abbey, London Reviews
This place is amazing! So much history and so much to see. The line to get in moved pretty fast. It was pretty long still at 0930-1000am when we got there, but only waited a half hour at most. Great audio guide. Paid extra to get into see the Queen's diamond jubilee exhibit. It was worth it because it took us up stairs and we were able to look down from above to see things, not to mention the extra items on display. The biggest disappointment was that we couldn't take photos. But still worth it.
You really need to make sure to give yourself enough time here to fully appreciate it all. There is so much to see that you honestly need at least two hours. There are signs all over the building marking that no photography is allowed inside. I know that not everyone follows this, but I seriously suggest you do. Separate yourself from your camera for this visit and just appreciate what you're seeing.
Definitely one of the most beautiful churches I’ve ever seen! We did the walking tour that is included with the London Pass, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The line was quite long to get in, about an hour, but honestly it was well worth it. I would recommend arriving when it opens to save some time.
Evensong Perfection in every aspect from sitting in the Great Choir to visiting Iken Scholars to magnificent clean organ work and real and appropriate harmonic improvisation. This is a prayerful service attended and celebrated by only those serious about faith, inward reflection, and worship. Arrive early for best seats and don't mess with the ushers who will assign you to stalls or cast you out into the gloomy chairs in the crossing. Also, please dress appropriately.
One of the best attractions in London. The lines are long, so go early and buy your pass online. If you buy directly ahead of time, you can skip the long line. The London Pass does not allow you to skip the line. Once inside, it's an audio tour. The device was a little awkward to use, but it was very informative. There's lots of history as a chapel and burial location for famous people. The architecture is amazing.
