Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey has continued to live on through the ages, playing host to a never ending list of some of the most historic figures in British history. The present church came into being in 1245 and its great Gothic design features two towers that reach a height of 225 feet, from which its ten bells can be heard ringing ahead of regular services.

Prince William was married to Kate Middleton here and Darwin and Newton can be found buried within its tombs. Visitors can take advantage of the multi-lingual guides that show the Royal Tombs, Poets Corner, Edward the Confessor’s Shrine and the Cloisters and Nave. Chapter House was originally used by Benedictine monks as a meeting place and is characterised by its beautiful octagonal design, complete with vaulted ceiling, glazed tiles and sumptuous wall paintings.
