Awe inspiring. Beauty, spirit, history - what more could you ask for! Expensive entry, especially when you consider the museums and galleries are free.

It’s maybe a bit crowded with tourists (and worshippers and staff), but they are all here because this place is so significant to England’s history.

If this is a destination for you on vacation, I seriously recommend buying tickets ahead of time as the line can be very long. I'd recommend spending the extra to take a guided verger tour. Our guide was amazing and conveyed so much of the...More

Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,

architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

We booked a bus tour that hit lots of tourist spots. They also get special "cut the line" privileges. We felt so special & didn't waste any time or leg fatigue standing in any lines. Well worth it!
