Westminster Abbey is an absolutely essential part of any visit to London. One of the city’s most iconic buildings, the Abbey has seen so much history that you can’t help but feel it.

Steeped in over a thousand years of history, Benedictine Monks first started worshipping at this site in the middle of the tenth century and the current building has been there for over 700 years.

This magnificent gothic construction is a sight to behold and the incredible stained glass is some of the most impressive in the UK and contains The Coronation Chair. Created for King Edward I in 1296, the chair has been the seat for the crowning of every monarch since 1308, including HRH Elizabeth II.

The literary corner of the Abbey is named due to the large amount of poets and writers buried there, including Geoffrey Chaucer, Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling and Thomas Hardy, as well as many beautiful memorial stones and busts dedicated to the likes of Shakespeare and Robert Burns.

Seventeen monarchs are buried at Westminster Abbey but it is also a site of happier events – it was also the venue where Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot in 2011.
