Summary

Your Experience

Westminster Abbey

One of London's oldest buildings, the Westminster Abbey boasts stunning Gothic architecture and exquisite stained glass. This iconic structure has hosted 38 coronations, starting with that of William the Conqueror. It has also seen the royal weddings of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, and Prince William. You will also get to see the Coronation Chair, which was created for King Edward I in 1296 and has since been the seat for the crowing of every monarch. To explore Westminster Abbey is to take a trip back in time. It is here that 17 British monarchs, and other exemplary figures such as Isaac Newton and Charles Dickens, are laid to rest. Apart from the Coronation Chair, you will also get to see Poets' Corner, named as such due to the number of poets and writers buried there.

St. Paul's Cathedral

Head over to St. Paul's Cathedral, designed by Sir Christopher Wren to stand on Ludgate Hill after the Great Fire of London. A church here has stood since 604 AD. St Paul's, with its world-famous dome, is an iconic feature of the London skyline. The dome is the world's second-largest dome and has adorned the London skyline for more than 300 years. Enjoy the Cathedral's awe-inspiring interior, and uncover fascinating stories about its history. Then visit the famous Whispering Gallery with its unique acoustics. Continue to the Stone Gallery, then the Golden Gallery atop the dome for a photo opportunity of the breathtaking panoramic views across London. Visit the crypt which is the resting place for famous Britons such as Lord Admiral Nelson, the Duke of Wellington, and Sir Christopher Wren.

Note: The Whispering Gallery and The Golden Gallery are currently closed. The Stone Gallery will be open. Access to the Dome will be open on Saturdays and school holidays only until further notice. The Dome will be open weekdays during the May half term. At the time of writing, it is hoped the Dome will re-open daily from the summer holidays but this is to be confirmed.
