Get an express lesson in British history on a guided tour of two of the most important institutions in London. Look inside Westminster Abbey, where members of the Royal Family have been crowned, got married, and laid to rest.

Ranked among the world’s great churches, the abbey has held every coronation, from William the Conqueror in 1066 to Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Marvel at the Gothic architecture of the historic monument, and be brought up to date with tales of the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Then, get taken to the entrance  of the Houses of Parliament and explore the hallowed halls at leisure with an official audio guide.
