Highlights

  • Settled in 960
  • Location for close to 20 royal weddings throughout history 
  • Site for royal coronations and burials 
Westminster Abbey is easily one of the most recognizable churches in Britain—and arguably the entire world. As the hub of British royal activity, this Gothic monstrosity—which is located west of the Houses of Parliament and Palace of Westminster—is the site of coronations and other significant ceremonies. Tours lead visitors through the Shrine and Tomb of Saint Edward the Confessor, the Royal Tombs, the Poet's corner, the Cloisters, and the Nave.
