Westminster Abbey Tours-William and Kate's Likely Wedding Venue

Westminster Abbey tours are a great way to visit Kate and William’s wedding venue (or hotly tipped wedding venue) in person! You can also do your own guided tour,or reccy, of the route the wedding party will proceed along through the historic streets of London! Ok, so you might not have a personal invite and the Abbey will be packed on the real wedding day,cheap hotels near Westminster Abbey all full up and pre-booked for months ahead, but you can go visit when you have the magnificent Westminster Abbey almost all to yourself and the nearby accommodation is cheaper.Our Westminster Abbey Tours review might give a flavour of what it's like to stand in the great cathedral-like hallowed space.

Away from all the pressing crowds you will be able to fully appreciate the architecture and atmosphere of one of England’s most important historic buildings, and imagine the royal scene that William and Kate will walk through in procession. Flanked by the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben this truly awesome London wedding venue is now a definite must-see for visitors to London. The Westminster Abbey tours reflect the respect given to this World Heritage Site and offer a snapshot of royal British history.

In addition to William and Kate’s wedding, you will remember (as the bride and groom surely will while walking down the aisle) the many and glorious coronations of the kings and queens of England that have taken place beneath the vaulted and high-arched roof. Wedding guest or not , you can still bathe in the atmospheric and spooky memorials to the great and the good of years gone by.

Sadly, you and the happy couple will probably also be thinking of Princess Diana whose funeral service was staged here in 1997. After taking your photo mementos of your Westminster Abbey tour of William and Kate’s wedding venue you can so easily stroll through Whitehall, the base of the British government. Then a recommended route for your London walk on William and Kate’s wedding trail will take you along to Buckingham Palace. You can imagine the excitement and buzz of the crowds on William and Kate’s wedding day and take your pics of the colourful spectacle of the cavalcade of the Horseguards or the Changing of the Foot Guards.

On your Westminster Abbey tour you will most probably enjoy the distinguished but weird tones of Big Ben’s bells - and then go home ready to watch the whole thing on T.V. thinking, I’ve been there! OK, I’m not an invited guest but I’ve been inside the Westminster Abbey wedding venue of Prince William and Kate Middleton and stood where they stood!
