Symbolising over a thousand years of history, Westminster Abbey has been intrinsic to the lives, reigns and deaths of monarchs since 1066. The official coronation church of our monarchy, the site of our current Queen’s coronation, of Prince William and Princess Kate’s wedding and many more, it’s also the final resting place of seventeen former rulers. Explore this treasured Gothic building and enjoy uniquely preserved architecture, stained glass windows and the Anglo-Saxon saint’s shrine in the centre. Admire centuries of artwork and tread in the steps of royalty while paying respects to major historical figures in the tombs. To crown a regal experience, finish off with afternoon tea at the Ambassador’s Hotel, The DoubleTree by Hilton Victoria or the Courthouse Hotel.
