Really nice place with a lot of relics inside. The audio tour is very good, packed with detail if you choose to listen to all the clips, but not necessary. Tomb of the lost soldier, the coronation chair and king George V grave are just some of the things you will find inside. It is recommended to buy tickets online, as the queue for on the door tickets is insanely long.
This may be one of my favorite places in London. It is humbling to walk through and see the tombs of/commemorations to historical figures and artists like Chaucer, Austen, Vaughan-Williams, Handel, and Purcell. I happily remained as the organist and choir were rehearsing. A majestic and magnificent place.
I like It. Sadly visited this years while scaffold around big Ben (Near by) and in side if Abbey also. Worth going on top floor to see. Be aware no flash photography and I think no photo whatsoever. Really busy place though so if you want to visit properly count at least 2 hrs if not 3. The audio guides (At start) are good if you have the time. Recommend to book in advance and you will not have to queue: directly enter the Abbey when the entrance queue (security) lead you to front steps: ask (many helpful people to ask) which area you should follow if you already have a booking reference: a print version is recommended for ease and speed.
A wonderful place with a lot of relics! I strongly recommend this place if you visit London! The audio tour is very good, with a lot if details if you are interested. The lost soldier’s tomb, the coronation chair and king George V grave are just few of the things you will find inside. Please note that shooting pictures inside is not permitted! I recommended to buy the London pass, with or without Oyster, or online tickets, as the queue for on the door tickets is very long. My recommendation is to take the pass with the oyster transportation included. (Uber is working great in London, it has many options too)
AMAZING! A must see! Wonderful history contained within the walls of this spectacular place. You will probably need around 3-4 hours to really tour this place, unless you are one of those who just walk through without actually taking in the sights and reading the information. Westminster Abbey was absolutely breathtaking.
