I had never seen so many graves in a church! It's nice to keep searching for specific graves and analysing the people's graves profiles. read full review

    The cultural significance of Westminster Abbey is hard to overstate. Its popularity can only have increased since the wedding in April 2011 of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.

    A medieval masterpiece, Westminster Abbey is filled with history and burials of many famous figures. Don’t forget to walk around the Cloisters and the Chapter House with the old wall paintings.
