Westminster Abbey is a remarkable Gothic church located in the heart of London. It is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the United Kingdom. It was used for coronations, burials and between 1540 and 1556 it had a status of a cathedral. Nowadays it's no longer an Abbey nor a Cathedral. It's now known as the Church of England "Royal Peculiar"

Westminster Abbey is pretty much always busy. Entry is normally through the North Entrance which is opposite the Parliament Square. 

Right behind the altar is the most sacred spot in the Abbey - the shrine of St Edward the Confessor.

You can visit Westminster Abbey every day Monday through Saturday. Opening hours are from 11am to 3:30pm
Admission fee for adults costs 20 pounds (about $29).
