What people are saying:

Legendary cathedral, world-famous, with a long history. Big, tall and big. Post-modern style is still good. Order is very good. Queuing to the inside is quiet. Every tourist is silently praying. Even if I was an atheist, I silently made a wish for world peace. Nice church! Recommended!

Additional Information

Introduction

Westminster Abbey is also called the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster. Its status as a Church of England “Royal Peculiar” means it is used exclusively by the British royal family. No other church in England is as important and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since 1066, nearly all important royal ceremonies have been held here. It served as the wedding venue for Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton. Furthermore, the royal tombs of England are located here. Apart from members of the royal family, many important historical figures such as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill and, most recently, Stephen Hawking are also buried here.
