Westminster Abbey is one of the two great national churches of the UK. It’s where Kings and Queens have been crowned for a thousand years. It’s here that the funeral of Princess Diana in 1997 was held. Here is the Tomb of Unknown Warrior – an anonymous man who was killed during World War One and who is honoured by the nation. See the Coronation Chair and Poets Corner where Shakespeare, Dickens, Chaucer and other great men of letters are honoured. Also visit little St Margaret’s Church – Parliament’s parish church – in the shadow of the Abbey. This guide is more than 16 minutes long.
