Every year Westminster Abbey welcomes over one million visitors who want to explore this wonderful historic building. Thousands more join us for worship at our daily services. Kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers; poets, priests, heroes and villains - the Abbey is a must-see living pageant of British history. The Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066 and is the final resting place of seventeen monarchs. The present church, begun by Henry III in 1245, is one of the most important Gothic buildings in the country, with the medieval shrine of an Anglo-Saxon saint still at its heart. A treasure house of paintings, stained glass, pavements, textiles and other artefacts, Westminster Abbey is also the place where some of the most significant people in the nation's history are buried or commemorated. Taken as a whole the tombs and memorials comprise the most significant single collection of monumental sculpture anywhere in the United Kingdom. Find out about the 3,300 people buried or commemorated at Westminster Abbey, many of them among the most significant in the nation's history. Explore the history and beauty of Westminster Abbey in this short film introduced by the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall.

While my dad lay in intensive care at st thomas hospital just the other side of the river Thames i sought sanctuary at westminster Abbey. I visited daily to attend services and sometimes 3 times a day. The clergy knew me by name the Rev John Dean included. i believe The abbey helped my dad live longer he lasted 28 days the initial prognosis was 28 to 48 hours. Will always have a special place in my heart and will be visited whenever i am in the area

I'm from Lincoln and I visited Westminster Abbey a few days ago, and I have to agree with the great Victorian writer John Rusking and I quote "I have always held... that the cathedral of Lincoln is out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles and roughly speaking worth any two other cathedrals we have."

Westminster Abbey a must have seen I was very impressed on my first visit to the Westminster Abbey about 52/3 years ago
Educational as well as a pleasure leisure en-tour to London Great - Britain.
It was so beautiful as well as horrific to a young girl/pupil/student of the time.
Kind regards to all the ' friends ' Educational school/class-mates from once upon a time.
Especially Paul and Susan Finnely from the British Embassy as well as to the next of kins of Miss j.B. Rosie -a royal queen Elisabeth II fan.

Was the abbey damaged at all during WWII? Also, i cant image what may have been during upkeep and modernization of the abbey.

 I have visited the Abbey on several occasions when i lived near to london and on a school trip to London many years a go and i have a very good book on the History of Westminster Abbey purchased from the Abbey Bookshop as i am very interested on the History of the Abbey and other Cathedrals and Abbeys of England And Wales. The book is worth purchasing.

what a beautiful place. the floor is incredible. every king and queen has been crown there since 1066. my family left whales and France before the revolutionary war in the 18th century and I dream of returning to Europe one day. after watching my countrymen elect Donald Trump I have definitely wanted to leave America
