DescriptionA visit to the iconic Westminster Abbey is an essential addition to any trip to London. Boasting a rich history that spans over one thousand years, the site was originally occupied by Benedictine monks in the middle of the tenth century. Here you can feast your eyes on imperious Gothic architecture and some of the most beautiful stained glass in the UK as you explore this monumental site in British history. See the Coronation Chair, the oldest piece of furniture in the country that is currently used for its original purpose, created for King Edward I in 1296. The throne has played host to the coronation of every single monarch since 1308. Queen Victoria was crowned here, as well as Elizabeth II, the current reigning Queen. Pay your respects at Poets' Corner, a section of the south transept of the abbey, so-called due to the large amount of writers and poets buried there. Rudyard Kipling, Geoffrey Chaucer, Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy are but a few of the famous wordsmiths who reside here. The corner is also decorated with many memorial stones and busts dedicated to the likes of William Shakespeare and the poet laureate Ted Hughes.
