Westminster Abbey London.

Westminster Abbey


Address: Mellan Broad Sancturay och St. Margaret Street, London.


Westminster Abbey If you are in the London city center, you can not miss this world-famous church. The church is located right next to Big Ben and if you are interested in amazing buildings and history - this is the place for you.

What can be found in the church?
Here you can watch the majority of resting UK kings, queens, famous poets, writers, artists, etc. You walk quietly through the halls and views and architecture that extends from 1065.
It feels a bit strange when you pass the names as we know from history lessons, Elizabeth I, Mary (Queen of Scots), Henry VII and others.

History
King Edward started construction of The Abbey 1065. He died shortly afterwards and was buried inside the church. When William the Conqueror came back to London after the Battle of Hastings, he chose to be crowned in the church, on Dec 25, 1066. After this, the Church has always been used in coronations. In 1245 King Henry III decided to enlargen "The Abbey" - this was the start of the French Gothic appearance. Different parts of the church has been enlargen over the centuries.

It was King Henry III's death in 1272 that started the tradition of royal funerals in Westminster Abbey.

To Westminster Abbey`s website

Ingen fotografering eller filmning. Keep in mind! You are not allowed to photograph or film inside the church. However, you can take pictures when you are on the outsides. It can also be a lot of people at peak season... it is a bit of a queue when you walk inside... but it is certainly worth a visit. Also remember to dress for a church visit.
