If there is one church/cathedral that you want to visit in London ..it has to be theis Abbey .The architecture is magnificient and the interior is breathtaking . worth the GBP 7.50 ( oucch ) . There is so much to see inside from the coronations of kings ( with so many marble effigies ), to tombs of royalty which includes the Elizabeth I buried opposite the Mary of Scot...whom she beheaded , to poets' corner and the pictureque Abbey garden.
