Step into an historical marvel at Westminster Abbey. With over 3,000 people buried within the abbey, from kings and queens to poets and statesmen, it's an incredible journey through history. In order to take the fullest advantage of it, arrive early and spend the extra 3 pounds per person to take the verger guided tour. While you wait for the tour (which runs every hour or so), grab an audio guide and explore the various naves around the main alter, as these are not covered by the guided tour. The vergers do a wonderful job of leading you through the main parts of the abbey, including several ares that are only accessible with the tour. They provide detailed explanations of the history of the abbey, a good slug of english history, coronations, royal weddings & funerals, etc. Plan on 2 to 3 hours for your visit and enjoy.
