Westminster Abbey Tours

star-4.5
33 Reviews
Westminster Abbey
A UNESCO World Heritage site, with a legacy dating back more than 1,000 years, Westminster Abbey is among London’s most historic landmarks. The Gothic church is best known for hosting headline-grabbing events involving the British royal family, such as the Queen’s coronation, Princess Diana's funeral, and Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.

The Basics
A tour of Westminster Abbey is like taking a walk through British history. Explore independently with an audio guide, on a tour led by a verger (church official), or with a private guide. Tickets include access to all the main areas of the church. The London Pass also grants access to Westminster Abbey. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Booking in advance will help you avoid waiting in long lines. Otherwise, be prepared to queue for up to an hour at peak times, especially in July and August.
  • As the abbey is a place of worship, visitors are asked to dress modestly, and due to its uneven floor and steps, comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
  • Taking photos or videos is not permitted within the abbey.
  • Some, but not all, areas of the abbey are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchair users should enter by the North Door; admission is free. 
  • On-site facilities include restrooms, a café, and a gift shop.

How to Get to Westminster Abbey
Westminster Abbey is located close to the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben in Central London, a short stroll from the Thames riverfront. The nearest tube stations are St. James's Park and Westminster. The visitor entrance to the abbey is at the West Gate of the North Green. 

When to Get There
Westminster Abbey is open to visitors every day except Sundays and on religious holidays, when the church is open to worshippers only. To avoid crowds, arrive early on a weekday. To hear the Abbey Choir perform, time your visit for the daily Evensong (weekdays at 5pm and weekends at 3pm). Special after-hours tours also run on Wednesday evenings, typically one of the quietest times to visit. 

What to See at Westminster Abbey
Visitors can see the Shrine, containing the tomb of Saint Edward the Confessor; the Royal Tombs, including the tombs of Queen Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots; the Poets' Corner, where a number of creatives are buried or commemorated; the Nave; the 13th-century Cloisters; and memorials devoted to Isaac Newton, Oscar Wilde, Shakespeare, and many more notable figures. For the full experience, end your visit with a stroll through the beautiful College Garden and a traditional afternoon tea at the Cellarium Café.
Address: 20 Deans Yd, Westminster, London SW1P 3PA, England
Hours: Worship only on Sundays. Open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 9:30am- 3:30pm, Saturday 9:30am - 1:30pm

Classic Westminster (Private 2 Hour Tour)

star-5
There’s so much history crammed into this one neighbourhood, you’ll be struggling to keep up. From memorials to greats in Westminster Abbey to the heartbeat of British government in Whitehall to the scene of all action, No. 10 Downing Street…this tour is a fast-paced thriller. Most-photographed, most-recognised and most-loved, every landmark helps you tick off your entire London-essentials list. Buzz of Trafalgar Square, elegance of St. James's Park, to the glamour of Buckingham Palace, it’s a feast all the way. Broad boulevards, and the vistas long -- the perfect backdrop for the pomp and pageantry of royal occasions. Piccadilly Circus, London Eye, River Thames, Hyde Park, Albert Hall, even Harrods…you’ll forget to look at your phone. We even do 3 UNESCO World Heritage and 2 Tudor Palaces. Themes vary from British Monarchy’s Royal Palaces to Pomp and Ceremony to UK Parliament and Brexit to Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour in World War Two. Which will it be for you today?

London’s iconic sites are primarily in the City of Westminster. First settled by Benedictine Monks in the over 1000 years ago, the area grew dramatically under the reign of Edward, the Confessor in the mid-11th century and has been the principle seat of the England’s monarchs almost ever since. In Westminster, government, politics, rebellion and restoration are the order of the day. This is the turf of Tudors, the centre of Civil War, the edifice of empire and the war rooms of Winston. ​ Our Westminster tour will showcase four Royal Palaces, two of London’s Royal Parks, its 2 most famous squares, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and much more.
