Although we had to queue for rather a long time, the visit was well worth it in the end. I would advise to book online.

My wife and I have been to London many times, but we had never been to Westminster Abbey. So, we decided to go on this visit. Normally, neither of us are particularly enamoured of either royalty or the Church, so our feeling that our visit...More

There are so many memorials and tombs that it is impossible to see everything in one visit. One of the most moving memorials is the inscription for Stephen Hawking. The tomb of Elizabeth I was also amazing; it's difficult to believe that that this beautiful...More

Apparently a service for Nelson Mandela is taking place so not able to use our prepaid London pass to see the abbey. Long way from Australia to be told not even be able to view this historic site.

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Thank you for the replies! Westminster Rep, I have a couple more questions please. I've looked at the website and there do not seem to be set times for entry. So, to clarify, if we purchase online in the morning the day we plan to go, we just produce our online passes when we get there and we are able to skip some of the queue time? right? Also, Are the family passes available online also "fast track" allowing to skip some of queue? Hope so, since that offers great savings for us. :) Finally, on the main web page with ticket price info. it lists 2 adults + 1 child, as well as 1 adult + 1 child. We plan to get both since we have 3 ad. + 2 kids and that is cheapest. When I click through to the form for this week the 1 adult + 1 child option does not appear to purchase... any help with this? THANKS so much!!
