Full description
Begin your visit at the meeting point at the Westminster Abbey entrance at 09:15 AM. Your guide will take you through the corners of this famous building, a traditional site for the wreaths and burials of the English monarchs and, later, the British monarchs. Since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066, all English monarchs have been crowned at the Abbey, with the exception of Joan I and Edward V. See the numerous tombs of various members of the royal family, aristocrats, and illustrious personalities such as scientists and poets, including the tombs of Charles Dickens, Geoffrey Chaucer, and Rudyard Kipling. In recent years, the Abbey has hosted Princess Diana's funeral, and Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding. During this tour, explore the incredible building full of history and enjoy an unforgettable day.

    Actual tour was one hour although travelers were told to plan for two hours. Guide was very courteous and informative but quality of tour was compromised by massive crowds in the Abbey on a Saturday morning in August. Not a good value at that time of day for the price of the tour ($73)
