Westminster Abbey is both a place of celebration and a place of worship. The church has been the location for many Royal Weddings including its most recent one in 2011 of Prince William and Kate Middleton, which was broadcasted globally. The church was first built in In 960 AD but has since been re-built into the beautiful gothic design church that it is today.
Although many celebrations have been held there, the famous church has also had some more serious occasions such as Princess Diana’s Funeral.
Entry is priced and both free and priced guided tours are available depending on what you would like to see. Visitors should be reminded that the Abbey is a place of worship and should dress modestly for entry.
The Abbey is easily accessible via the Jubilee or district line and is in walking distance from other attractions such as Big Ben and The Houses of Parliament.
