Westminster Abbey has also witnessed important historical events for the Important Royal Family, from the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the coronation of the king and most recently being the final resting place of Queen Elizabeth II.
Compiled by detikTravel from several sources, Friday (9/9/2022), Westminster Abbey itself has an area of about 3,000 square meters. This gothic-style church can accommodate up to thousands of worshipers.
With two towers that soar to 69 meters high, Westminster Abbey is 31 meters high and is equipped with 10 bells. This church was originally built in honor of Saint Peter.
