Westminster Abbey tour with a private London guide
A Westminster Abbey tour is one of the essential visits on your trip to London. A private Westminster Abbey tour can take 90 minutes or up to 2 hours and can be tailored to suit your itinerary, interests and your group. If you visit with a Registered Tourist Guide like myself then we use a separate ticket office so that you may skip the long entrance lines.

Westminster Abbey tour can be included as part of a half day London tour. After a 90 minute or 2 hour Abbey tour we can take a Westminster walk to see Big Ben and Parliament. If you have young children a fun option is to take a ‘royal walk’ through a London park to view Buckingham Palace. There’s plenty of things to talk about and look at on the way.
Or if you choose just to do the Abbey and we can spend a leisurely few hours exploring its history and architecture in depth.
