I revisited thipe Abbey recently for tge first time in many years. I had forgotten just how splendid it is, and just how much there is to see there. Highlights: the Henry VII chapel, Pets' Corner, and the Churchill floir tablet. But there's so much more to see...

I have a thing against places that don’t allow photos... especially ones that charge $30 a person to get in. There was nothing too remarkable about it honestly.

Westminster Abbey was included in our London Pass. Without the London Pass, it would have cost £21. There was no queue so we walked right in. Included in the admission was an excellent audio guide which included lots of history and factual information. Definitely a must see in London.
