About Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey is also called the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster. Its status as a Church of England “Royal Peculiar” means it is used exclusively by the British royal family. No other church in England is as important and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since 1066, nearly all important royal ceremonies have been held here. It served as the wedding venue for Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton. Furthermore, the royal tombs of England are located here. Apart from members of the royal family, many important historical figures such as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill and, most recently, Stephen Hawking are also buried here.

    Westminster Abbey is also called Westminster Abbey. It is not only the Church of the Church of England, but also the place where kings were crowned and members of the royal family were married. This is where Prince William's wedding took place. At the same time, it is also a British tomb, in addition to members of the Royal family, many celebrities including Newton, Churchill and so on are buried here. It is unexpected that the British Royal Empire should concentrate the red and white wedding events in one place, but also a little too careless. After standing in line for about 20 minutes, we exchanged the one-day tour ticket for the official ticket. After strict security check, we entered the church and got a guide with Chinese explanations. Photographs are not allowed in the church, so you can listen carefully. With the flow of visitors slowly moving along the established route, we first saw the tall dome and colorful windows in the vestibule, but what shocked us most was the sculptures everywhere from the entrance. These sculptures are actually tombstones. It is rare to have so many tombstones and tombstones in churches. Most of these tombstones belong to royalty or famous figures, which is unparalleled in the world. Walking through the Tomb of the Unknown Martyr at the West Gate to the Altar Gate, there is the famous Newton's Tomb, which is a marble sarcophagus. The statue shows Newton's reliance on the sarcophagus, with his great works "On Divinity" and "On Movement" under his arms. The sculpture on the tombstone makes people feel that he is really an angel who brings human physical knowledge. On the ground near him were the tombstones of scientists such as Ferrari and Joule, and not far away were the tombstones of Darwin. The simple and simple tombstones of these scientists are in sharp contrast to the full sculpture of Newton's tombstones. They are also great scientists. They are also in the great Westminster Temple, but they still see different tombstones. It turns out that human beings are also unequal in the face of science. Then he came to the main altar. The Chinese guide introduces in detail the functions of the main altar, as well as the setting of the king's ascension ceremony or the wedding and funeral ceremony held here. The contents are detailed and knowledgeable. Faced with so many tombstones of kings, the admiration for this church is even stronger when we hear such a great event happening here. No wonder there are so many tourists gathering here. It's absolutely necessary to visit London. Visited the main altar, and then entered the chapel in the church. Most of these chapels are in the tombstone area of successive kings. Every punctuality in the church has about a minute of prayer ceremony. With the voice of the Lord's prayers, tourists mostly stand in silence. At this moment, the church is really silent. At this moment, I feel the dignity and influence of religious belief once again. In the exchange of names such as Henry and James, in the introduction of the struggle between Mary and Elizabeth, in the reincarnation of 1234567, and in the complaint of the memory confusion caused by such an unoriginal name of the British Royal Family, the visit to this large area of the National Cemetery in Westminster Abbey was ended. In fact, we have traveled through a long period of British history in a short period of time.

After renting the interpreter, I took a Chinese version of the guide map. Photography and videos are prohibited in churches. Enjoy the stained glass of the church. It has a harmonious tone, based on dark blue and bright red, red and blue intersect, in the interior of the church pale limestone to produce a beautiful purple glow, so that everything around the soft and warm. After the church was completed, it undertook the Royal coronation, Royal wedding, state funeral and other important ceremonies. In 1920, the unknown hero was buried in the main hall of the church. Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953. In 1997, Diana, Princess of Wales, was buried. In 2002, the Queen Mother's funeral. In 2010, His Highness Benedict XVI visited Britain for evening prayers. His Highness Prince William married in 2011. Every hour, the minister on duty presides over a prayer. Please keep quiet. Every prayer is different. Several of our relatives lit candles in the main hall and wrote prayers in front of the shrine altar. The staff of the cathedral wear special red, green and blue robes. The head of the delegation asked a staff member dressed in a red robe about a world-famous tombstone in the tombstone forest in the basement of Westminster Abbey circulated online. The staff carefully inquired and answered - "There is no basement in the cathedral, so there is no anonymous tombstone, no famous tombstone in the world, and there is no such remark, all of which are fallacies. The church also keeps the "chair" which symbolizes power, in kind, on the left side of the exit.

    It's just 11 long holidays. There are many sculpture tombstones inside the church. They are equipped with Chinese explanatory devices. But because they don't know much about British history, it's still very hard to suggest that it would be very interesting to know about the history of British dynasties before they visit. Some of the monuments were originally buried under the flagstones and Hawking's Memorial was seen. The tablet was respectful

    Westminster Church is a very important Cathedral in England. It is also a must-see attraction in London. The church is very magnificent. It's a royal church. It's open to the outside world. It buys tickets to visit. There are reservations on the internet, but in fact they have to queue up, which is a little shorter than those without reservations. Free lecturers are available in churches. It's convenient to have a variety of languages, including Chinese. There are many celebrities buried in it. It's worth seeing. Inside the church there are crowned thrones and tombs of monarchs of all dynasties, but photographs are not allowed inside the church. It's no problem to walk to the corridor and take pictures. Westminster Church has a long history, but it is rare that there will be modern style art exhibition on the corridor to express the memory of the victims of war. There is a sales department at the exit, and there are many people. They sell all kinds of souvenirs, and they can also browse around.

    Westminster Abbey, an important event of the British Royal family, is held here. It is magnificent and magnificent. It buries the queens of England's dynasties and scientists who have made outstanding contributions to British history, such as Newton. There are all kinds of kings, old John and old James in it. I don't know who they are and who they are. Anyway, although the sun can shine in or listen to the gloomy, there are many beautiful murals and reliefs inside, but do not allow photography. There are also free guides available. It's very detailed. It's so detailed that you can hear you fall asleep. Although not familiar with the history of the UK, there are detailed descriptions everywhere. You can rent an electronic guide. You can hear detailed descriptions by inputting the corresponding numbers in it. It seems that there is no Chinese.

    Westminster Abbey, a must-see attraction in London, is crowded with people before 9:30. It's a worthwhile trip to see saints. Newton, Shakespeare, Dickens and Hawking are also places where Princess Diana's funeral ceremony takes place.

    Five-star praise, industry conscience, worthy of this trip. In Westminster Abbey, God lived next to scientists, and the king slept with literati. The boundary between life and death is blurred here, secular and religion blend here, monarchy and church collide here, science and theology coexist here, human nature and divinity shine together here. Tickets: Adults: 18 pounds for students over 18 years old and 60 years old: 15 pounds for school-age teenagers between 11 and 18 years old: 8 pounds for children under 11 years old, free of charge, but with adult companionship open time: usually Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday 9:30-15:30, Wednesday 14:00-18:00, Sunday closed. When there are specific events and festivals, the opening time will change. You can check the website for details.

    It would be a pity to just look at the periphery. In addition to the important ceremonies such as royal wedding and coronation ceremony, there are many tombstones and monuments of the royal family and celebrities, which are exquisitely carved. Including Elizabeth I, Queen Mary, Newton, Darwin, Shakespeare, Henry III, VII and so on. Unfortunately, no photographs can be taken inside. It takes two hours to watch and listen slowly. Tickets include a Chinese guide, and you can download the official app of Westminster Temple to listen. Even if the bathroom is a little smaller or shared by men and women, there will be long queues waiting for a longer time.

    Westminster means Western Cathedral. The church was named after it in the west of Westminster Cathedral in London. From the 13th to the 16th centuries, the kings of England devoted themselves to their design, which turned it into a hodgepodge of styles. It matches today's British royal family in that they are also of many different ancestral origins and have long held Westminster church as parish home for weddings, funerals and coronations. The crowning ceremony of the royal family was held in Westminster Abbey. All the kings of the past dynasties, including Queen Elizabeth, except Edward V and Edward VIII, were crowned and crowned in Westminster Abbey. Even after a hundred years, they are in Changmian Temple. On April 29, 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Prince William and Kate) married at the famous Westminster Abbey in England. The Royal Wedding is one of the most anticipated and watched wedding ceremonies so far, and about 2 billion people around the world watched it.
