Visit Westminster Abbey, the coronation church of the British monarchy since the 11th century

Just a short walk from the Thames, Westminster Abbey is a must-see and a significant structure in British history. This beautiful gothic church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site popular with many visitors to London. Complete with paintings, stained glass windows and other religious artefacts, Westminster Abbey owns the most important collection of monumental sculpture anywhere in Britain.

A really great opportunity to visit one of the world’s most famous building here on our doorstep. This ancient Abbey, site of many royal and state occasions, has much to show everyone. This will be a private tour by an experienced guide.
