We loved the tour of Westminster Abbey! It was a highlight of our time in London. However, this ticket doesn't allow you to skip the line like we thought it would. It is a voucher for a ticket. We had to wait in line about 45 min to get our 'official' tickets.
A must visit!! Gorgeous cathedral with incredible historical artifacts.
While it was nice to purchase in advance it did not save a minute. Everyone waited in a single line, tickets or not. No skip the line advantage. Important to come in the morning as after lunch the line looked really long. The cafe and gardens within the grounds are worth a visit.
I have been to London several times, and every time I tried to visit the Abbey, it was closed.
So this time, I booked ahead. But in spite of what I thought I understood, this was not the best way to do it. The Viator (Tripadvisor) ticket, is not a “Skip the line” ticket. Instead, it is a non-refundable, non-changeable voucher, which you must wait in the same line to redeem as all of the non-ticket holders at the Abbey. Don’t buy it – it doesn’t make any sense.
My wife took ill on our trip, and it would have been nice if we could have done this tour the following day, but since the tickets were non-refundable, non-changeable, we would have lost our ticket cost. If we instead had arrived without a ticket, we could have purchased it on any day we felt like visiting. A much better idea. Or, if you like you may buy your ticket from the Abbey website itself – people with these tickets were skipping the line. From their website: “We offer a dedicated fast track entry for pre-booked online tickets bought via the Abbey ticketing site only; with the exception of pre-booked Wednesday Lates tickets.” This entry is not marked – you will need to ask an employee after passing through the mandatory security line. But do keep in mind – the Abbey tickets purchased online are also non-changeable.
The Abbey itself is wonderful! – You can see where the monarchs of England have been coronated and married for centuries, as well as visit the memorials for many of the most significant people in British History. You can’t take any pictures inside, but you can find many good ones online!
Not worth getting a ticket in advance. You have to wait in line with everyone that is purchasing a ticket(mine was 2 hours, and I had a ticket). The abbey was jam packed with people you could barely move around to view the place. Audio was confusing and all over the place. Pretty, but not really worth it.
I bought a ticket to visit on a Saturday and when I got there they said that they were no allowing the Viator tickets that day only the ones bought directly. I was told I had to come back on Monday. Luckily I was still there on Monday But I wasn’t?
