Westminster Abbey Houses
An architectural masterpiece of the 13th to 16th centuries, Westminster Abbey also presents a unique pageant of British history. Westminster Abbey, a work of architectural genius, a place of daily worship, deploying the resources of high musical expertise, a burial place of kings, statesmen, poets, scientists, warriors and musicians, is the result of a process of development across the centuries, which represents the response of a monastery and later a post-Reformation church to the stimulus and challenge of its environment.
Verger-led tours of the Abbey are available for individuals or family groups only. They last for approximately 90 minutes and include a tour of the Shrine, the Royal Tombs, Poet's Corner, the Cloisters and the Nave.
