Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Westminster Abbey:

"London is vast. You don't say where you will be based, or what you'll be doing on the day, so I'm going to assume you'll be somewhere in Central London. 'Affordable' varies from person to person so, again, I must assume that my idea of 'affordable' is roughly the same as yours. Do look at pubs as well as restaurants. The vast majority of pubs offer good, affordable food for lunch as well as in the evening. For either lunch or dinner I can personally recommend the Holly Bush in Hampstead:  "  See More

"I've been to, and enjoyed, The British Museum, the National Gallery, Westminster Abbey, Saint Paul's Cathedral, St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, ect."  See More

"You can visit Saint Paul's Cathedral or Westminster Abbey."  See More

"It's hard choosing just one but out of all the places in London to visit, you cannot miss seeing the Covent Garden, Greenwich Market, Borough Market, Westminster Abbey and although super touristy, the London Eye is beautiful!"  See More

"Of course you should see the major things -- Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guards, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye -- but if you are looking for other options, also check out the following."  See More

"You are also going to at least go by some of the famous landmarks-the House of Parliament and Westminster Abbey are near each other, if you decide to visit Westminster Abbey, do the verger tour which is a few extra £, well worth the money."  See More

"Its only two stops from Clapham Junction railway station (trains pretty much every couple of minutes) to Victoria which leaves you within walking distance of Buckingham Palace, Westminster Cathedral, Westminster Abbey."  See More

"Just try to hit one museum (my vote is for either The British Museum or Tate Modern), one government/royal thing (Buckingham Palace or House of Parliament), one historical site (Churchill War Rooms or Westminster Abbey) and one outdoor spectacle (Big Ben or Trafalgar Square)."  See More

"Westminster Abbey is a great church with a lot of history and you get to see some important tombs in the church."  See More

"Its worth going into Westminster Abbey."  See More

"Big Ben and House of Parliament are also musts(right next to each other) and Westminster Abbey is right across the way and great."  See More

"do a walk from House Of Parliament to Westminster Abbey then walk past 10 Downing Street."  See More

"DAY 1 visit the House of Parliament and Westminster Abbey, see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace,"  See More

"If you haven't toured the House Of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, or Saint Paul's Cathedral, they are all well worth it."  See More

"As for sighting, in London: Tower Of London (get a free tour with one of the Beefeaters- hilarious and informative--plus your kids will love this place--you can climb very tight spiral staircases), river cruise on the River Thames, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace with St James' Park (they will love all the birds and white pelicans), Big Ben/Parliament Square."  See More

"Some other interesting activities are going to Hampton Court Palace right outside of the city, walking around Camden Town or Piccadilly Circus Travel Information Centre, and going into Westminster Abbey."  See More

"Tourist traps in London that are totally worth it: Covent Garden, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, and Harrods!"  See More

"You can always try to get reduced price tickets at the TKTS booth in Leicester Square Must sees should include Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, London Eye, Westminster Abbey, or just a walk down the River Thames"  See More

"Then there is Saint Paul's Cathedral, the Houses Of Parliment, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Trafalgar Square."  See More

"The visit to Westminster Abbey is not cheap but it is worth the money IF you aren't rushing to try to get somewhere else."  See More

"Hi Raine, You seem to have a nice grip on what to see and do but I would suggest a few tweeks to get the most of food and sightseeing, among the locals. I assume you are okay with walking? Remember that you can always pop in a bus or tube but do make sure to have an oyster card with money in it (or a day/weekend pass) which you can get at most tube (that's the underground) stations. You can use >"  See More

"I assume you want to do all of the classic london sights (Trafalgar Square, The British Museum, South Bank of the Thames, Westminster Abbey etc."  See More

"I have taken 3 different people on their 1st trip to London in the last few years and while I try to tailor the trip to their particular likes, I have ended up seeing the Tower Of London, Portobello Market, the Victoria & Albert Museum and Harrods on all of the visits, Camden Market, Westminster Abbey and The British Museum on two of the visits."  See More

"I take all 1st timers to the Tower Of London, Westminster Abbey and The Windsor Castle if a longer visit."  See More

"You can do all of the normal touristy sights - Buckingham Palace, Tower Of London, Westminster Abbey etc."  See More

"Me & my wife visited London on a very low budget. Our fave free (cheap) things to do in London... 1) Walk alog the Thames River 2) Take a ride on the top-deck of any free double decker public transport red bus. 3) There are a few 45 mins to 1 Hr free walking tours conducted by some of the bus tour companies. We scored a change-of guard tour for free where the entire ceremony was properly explained. 4) Most museums in London are free, except for the "Special Exhibitions" sections. Here is a list to get you started: /"  See More

"You can go see many of the sights for free (there is only a charge to enter and honestly the outside of the buildings are generally the most interesting part): Buckingham Palace, Trafalgar Square, London Bridge, Westminster Abbey, House Of Parliament, Tower Of London, Olympic Park, etc."  See More
