Westminster Abbey was built by Edward the Confessor and completed just before his death in 1065. Since William the Conqueror all the kings & queens of England have been crowned here.
This 7th-century London landmark has been the venue of choice for bejeweled coronations—and, of course, weddings for the Queen Mum, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Andrew—and now, William and Kate!
This is where my cousin Kate became a Princess! Westminster Abbey is absolutely beautiful. The vaulted ceilings, the stained glass, the painting of Stedman. I might be thinking of Oprah's house.
TRAVEL FACT: This 700-year-old Gothic church contains over 600 monuments and memorials located right across the street from Parliament.
In the South Transept of Westminster Abbey sits Poets' Corner, where England's most illustrious men of the pen Geoffrey Chaucer and Charles Dickens are buried. Kristin Knox, The Clothes Whisperer
Have a wander around Dean's Yard while in the area. Marvellous to see the back of the Abbey!
Big Ben, Parliment, Westminister, 10 Downing, all close together!
This ornate Gothic church is where the coronation of British monarchs happen. Aside from guided tours, audio guides are available in 8 languages. Opens at 9:30am. No tourist visits on Sundays.
A medieval masterpiece, Westminster Abbey is filled with history and burials of many famous figures. Don’t forget to walk around the Cloisters and the Chapter House with the old wall paintings.
Beautiful church, absolutely must-see. Numerous major British figures are entombed here, from royalty to writers to scientists.
The place became a popular venue for royal weddings when Princess Patricia chose it for her marriage to the Alexander Ramsay in 1919.
If you love history, statues, beautiful architecture and don't care if you can't take photos you should go. Absolutely beautiful building and my favourite attraction in London.

Things I have to see while in London
When you reach the entrance you get goosebumps!
Work your way towards Westminster Bridge, covering the Horse Guards Parade on the way.
The event of the Century!
No cameras aloud on Sunday, but they'll let anyone sit in on service, which, with the acoustics and sheer magnificence of the place, is moving even to the non-religious.
Not only did Wills wed here, but so did Grandma, Great Aunt Margaret & Aunt Anne. A majestic Gothic cathedral dating to 1245, it's the monarchy's ceremonial site, hosting all 38 British coronations

Mary Queen of Scots tomb was sculpted by William and Cornelius Cure. She wears a close-fitting coif, a laced ruff, and a long mantle fastened by a brooch. At her feet is the Scottish lion crowned.
The magnificent marble tomb of Mary Queen of Scots, erected by her son James I, is located in the south aisle of the Lady Chapel. It features a fine white marble effigy under an elaborate canopy.
Mary Queen of Scots was first buried in Peterborough Cathedral with great solemnity by Elizabeth I's orders but her son, James VI & I had her remains brought to Westminster in 1612.
