About The Tour

Take a private tour of our Coronation Church with your expert British Tours guide. Every single one of our Monarchs since 1066, except two who were never crowned, have been crowned on this spot. Many of our medieval Kings and Queens are buried within, including the three children of our most famous King - Henry VIII.

See Innocents Corner, home to the casket supposedly holding the bones of two little princes murdered in the Tower of London – a truly fascinating story.

From Royal weddings, such as that of William and Kate to Coronations, such as that of Elizabeth II to funerals, such as that of Princess Diana, some of the most important Royal events have taken place here. Your guide will also show you the burial places of some of the most famous names in our rich history - Isaac Newton, Charles Dickens, Charles Darwin, Geoffrey Chaucer to name but a few.

And some surprises too await you on this wonderful tour of this magnificent church - discover why one famous figure was buried standing up!

See also the coronation chair on which our monarchs have been crowned since the 13th Century and why the stone that it was built to hold, now no longer there, has such an important role to play in history! Unmissable on any visit to London!

This visit can be stand alone in 2 hours or combined with a walk of the Westminster area in 4 hours.
