This breathtaking cathedral is apparently one of the most important Catholic church in England and Wales, and it shows. The interior is massive and gilded, with an altar area the size of a Broadway stage. I highly recommend trying to catch a choir concert here - the acoustics and the atmosphere are unmatched.Recommended for:

I just LOVED the self guided audio tour of Westminster Abbey. It's def something everyone should do, esp if you have the City Pass. There is also another small chapel on the property, I think St. Margarets? It is free to go in there.

One of the most beautiful places of worship I have been and so many historic figures are buried here. Entry is prohibitively expensive (over 20 pounds, I reckon), but it's free if you go for service. Timings on the website

The famous Westminister Abby was rather pricey to get into but the Cathedral was very impressive to see and free. As you can see from my photo the area over the alter is cased in gold and elaborate designs. Definitely worth seeing!Recommended for:

The architecture of Westminster can inspire even the most discriminating "anti-touristy" people. It may be crowded and it may be cliche, but take one look at this building, and you understand why.Recommended for:

One of the most well known buildings in the entire world. The carving, intricate design, buttressed columns, gargoyles, interred heros/royalty, and some very significant and special historical items.
This is a one of a kind place. There are very few places of such significance the world over, that are still in regular use.
Pro Tip: Pay the fee and go enjoy this place. This was one of my favorite things to have stopped at while in London. The sound tour is worth it to learn the historical significance of many different parts of this place.
My favorite thing to see inside was a rickety old wooden seat that every queen and king of England has been crowned upon for hundreds of years. That is a pretty special thing.
There is a special sight around every corner, above and below it as well. It is something new at every turn.
I cant more highly suggest going here. It is well well worth a few hours to a half day at least to view this place. It is definitely special.Recommended for:

I've been here several times. If you go for Evensong, you don't have to pay. Memorable mostly for the tombs, but also a majestic building. There's also a school attached, which is not the more famous Westminster School but rather the Westminster Abbey School for boy choristers.Recommended for:

Those visiting London should certainly stop by Westminster Abbey, a famous church, where many of the English nobility are buried at, including Elizabeth and Mary, the Black Prince, and others. The tour guide gives a wonderful history of the people buried here, and even provides a softer and more human side of King Edward of Braveheart fame. The Duke of Wellington has a monument here also, and even Cornwallis, the general who lost the American Revolution! There's a monument here for him, but no one talks about him ^)^ Westminster Abbey is a holy place, but also a wonderful site of history, timelessness, and the past come alive!Recommended for:

Beautiful Gothic Church, that is the seat of the Anglican Church. It is also where most of the British kings and queens were crowned, and buried. Check out the tombs of the royalty as well as several famous Englishmen like Charles Darwin and Sir Isaac Newton. Try to make it for an organ concert if you can, the Abbey's great organ sounds magnificent.Recommended for:
