"Westminster Abbey" Westminster Abbey Tip by easyoar
Westminster Abbey, London: 268 reviews and 472 photos
This is the much more impressive of the two main Westminster churches (the other is the Cathedral). There has been a church on this site since around 1050, and I believe some bits from that time still remain today. The outside of the building is very ornate with its flying buttresses, but the inside is also not to be missed. There's the Coronation Chair which is where the Kings and Queens of Britain have ben crowned since 1308! Queen Elizabth I is also buried here. Poets corner has numerous memorials to the likes of William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens. There is also the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Oh, and whilst you're there, don't forget that this church features in the DaVinci Code, so you may want to pose for a picture with your Dan Brown book...
