Walk in the footsteps of royals at Westminster Abbey in London

Get inside Westminster Abbey before the crowds and learn all the facts your brain can pack in, as you explore the nooks, crannies and corners with a British guide.

There really is so much history to Westminster Abbey.

Founded by monks in 960 AD, and originally built on a small island on the Thames, Westminster Abbey has over 1,000 years of history behind its humble walls.

Dive into all the historical details that other tours leave out and get the inside scoop on the important events that have taken place here. Reminisce and remember the late Queen Elizabeth II, learn more about Princess Diana's funeral, William and Kate’s wedding, and think back to the cold, winter's night in 1950 when a group of daring students broke in and stole the Stone of Scone.

Take a walk around on your own and see the tombs of royal family members, aristocrats, and illustrious personalities like Charles Dickens, Geoffrey Chaucer and Rudyard Kipling.

It's a close-up look at British history like you've never experienced it before.
