    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.

    Go at around 3pm and linger until 4pm when the Abbey Choir practices. You can listen to them in the Nave. Self guided audio tour is free and an excellent way to explore the Abbey and learn the history
