Westminster Abbey
Wednesday 15th March  2017

We will catch  the 08.06 train from Newton Abbot which should arrive into London Paddington          at 11.39.
We plan on exploring some of the buildings near  Westminster Abbey as well as the Abbey itself.
Westminster Abbey has been the Coronation church since 1066 and the setting for many other great events in the life of the nation, including 16 royal weddings.  It is the burial places of kings & queens and other distinguished figures in the nation's history.
An audio guide is included in your price  although there a verger tours which can't be pre-booked due to their commitments, sometimes available at an extra cost of £5 which I am told are worth it.
Close by is Central Hall Westminster where the television cameras film events at Westminster Abbey from and also where the New Years Eve Music Concerts come from. Hopefully we might be able to see from where they take place.  Still in the area is the Supreme Court where I believe they are sitting today and we might be able to enter and if there is no queue & time Westminster Palace.
Our return train is not until 19.45 (arriving back into Newton Abbot 22.40) so no need  rush back but time to get an meal around the Paddington area where there are  various pubs & steakhouses + ASK & Zizzi who often have special offers.
Please wear sensible footwear as the Abbey has  steps & old floors.

Train, entry to Westminster Abbey & audio tour  ONLY £49.00
