Tour description

Dream of the last Anglo-Saxon king and a flagship of the Church of England, Westminster Abbey is a tour de force of 1000 years of both English and British history.
This spectacular Medieval gothic ‘royal peculiar’ has hosted every coronation from William the Conqueror to Elizabeth II and seventeen royal weddings, most recently that of William and Kate. It is also the burial place of many royals and notables including feuding Tudor siblings Elizabeth and Mary, writers such as Geoffrey Chaucer, Rudyard Kipling and Charles Dickens, scientists Isaac Newton, Stephen Hawking and Charles Darwin, abolitionists, actors and the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. 
Marvel at the 700 year old coronation chair as you learn more of this most sacred and complex ceremony, admire the craft of 16th century stonework, the portraits of modern martyrs and the grand Henry VII Lady Chapel.
 
Ascend the 52ft to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries where, up with the flying buttresses and ornately carved gargoyles, you’ll discover a 13th century triforium. Hidden for centuries, the galleries now tell the secrets of the abbey.

Using a special entrance to skip the line, your private guide will give you an unparalleled 2 hour insight to this very British emblem and its place in the last 1000 years of our turbulent yet extraordinary history.
