If you like British history, visiting Westminster Abbey is a must. Founded in 960, kings, queens, poets, soldiers, statesmen, have all been associated with the abbey. Of course, many of them are long dead, but they are buried here! Which is almost as good. A full list of all the famous people associated with the abbey can be found on the website. The building itself is 700 years old and remarkably beautiful.
More recently in 2011, the church was also used for William and Kate’s wedding. So if you’re more interested in modern-day celebs than their 15th-century counterparts, there is still something for you.
Fun fact: the English audio guide is read by Jeremy Irons. The audio guide can also be found in 10 other languages. You can pick one up as you enter the Abbey or, if you have an android or iPhone, you can download the audio guide before you go.
The abbey is still used as a church with services. Special services such as those around Christmas must be applied for in advance but are free.
