About Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey welcomes families as you explore the rich history of British Monarchs like the many kings and queens, as well as all the marvellous notable people that have created history here. You can discover over 10 centuries of British History in the world-famous church right here in London. 

The History of Westminster Abbey 
Did you know that Benedictine monks founded the Gothic church in 960AD?! With so much English history to unveil, it's no wonder it's an impressive tourist attraction. From royal occasions to the final resting place. 
The Abbey is known to be the final resting place for 30 monarchs in their royal tombs, for both iconic kings and queens. From King Edward the Confessor, Henry III, and Charles II,  to Edward VI, Elizabeth I, Mary I and George II who was the last English monarch to be buried here. Due to this, it's known to be the House of Kings.

The church that we see today was built by Henry III in the 13th century. Alongside being the resting place of many, the Abbey also houses a treasure of artefacts and a house of worship. It has also held many royal occasions, such as the royal coronations of British Monarch like Willliam the Conqueror to Elizabeth II and being home to the Coronation Chair! As well as, 16 royal weddings and funerals like Lady Diana Spencer's.

As well as being the resting place of monarchs, Westminster Abbey's famous for holding many famous people, scientists and poets too, in The Nave. Such as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Stephen Hawking. In Poets' Corberm you'll find memorials of world-famous poets for those literature lovers. Like William Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde. The gift shop also sells beloved publications from these writers as well as Rudyard Kipling.

You'll find various guided tours to explore the ins and outs of Westminster Abbey. From the Verger tour where you'll discover special areas of the Abbey like the Poets' Corner, royal tombs, Chapter House, Lady Chapel and more. With the audio tours, you'll have an audio guide, you can follow the public access to the Abbey and learn more about the religious building that obtains a rich history.
