Gazing upwards in the Henry VII chapel recalls the wonderful creations of the human mind. The space is stunning in its beauty and exquisiteness. Fan vaulting that extends throughout is captivating. This is only one of the multitude of treasures in the Abbey. To stroll...More

Beautiful cathedral. Last entrance is at 15:30. We just missed it (got there at 15:25) and had to come back the next day. You can, however, attend the later church service but you must remain in the cathedral for the entire service and then you...More

Just one observation. We visited a cathedral. House of worship. Instead of being part of a community of visitors enjoying the sights and sounds people were given earphones to learn about the cathedral. Yes, I’m well aware that these are educational and can be helpful...More

Have visited many times in the past- be prepared for construction at Big Ben, Parliament and Westminster. Check hours so you have time to visit and see the entire site. The gift store is lovely so do not skip it.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

We booked a bus tour that hit lots of tourist spots. They also get special "cut the line" privileges. We felt so special & didn't waste any time or leg fatigue standing in any lines. Well worth it!
