One of London's oldest buildings, the Westminster Abbey boasts of 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.
