Description
An essential addition to any visit to London and set in the heart of the city, Westminster Abbey is legendary and iconic. Boasting a rich history that spans over one thousand years, the site was originally occupied by Benedictine monks in the middle of the tenth century. The current gothic masterpiece has stood there for about 700 years.

Glorious Architecture
The imperious gothic master work is truly breathtaking and the intricate stained glass is some of the most beautiful in the UK.

Coronation Chair
The oldest piece of furniture in the country that is currently used for its original purpose, the sacred chair was created for King Edward I in 1296. The throne has played host to the coronation of every single monarch since 1308. Queen Victoria was crowned here, as well as Elizabeth II, our current reigning Queen.

Poets’ Corner

This section of the south transept of the abbey is so called due to the large amount of writers and poets buried there, including Rudyard Kipling, Geoffrey Chaucer, Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy. The corner is also decorated with many memorial stones and busts dedicated to the likes of William Shakespeare and poet laureate Ted Hughes.

Kings and Queens
A place of monumental British history and intrigue, an incredible seventeen monarchs are buried at Westminster Abbey. It was also the venue for William and Kate’s fairytale wedding in 2011.
