At the end of April 2011, London will stop. In fact, England generally and most of the United Kingdom will grind to a halt as the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton takes place at Westminster Abbey.

A magnificent sight on any day of the week, this Early English Gothic church, built in the 12th century, will that day be filled with the world’s rich and important and the likes of you and I shall not be allowed inside. Since William the Conqueror in 1066, nearly all the British Kings and Queens have been crowned here, lots of them have married here, and many of them (from Henry III in 1272 to George II in 1760) have been buried here.
