This glorious gothic pile has been the burial place of kings and queens, and of other distinguished figures in the nation’s history, from writers and musicians to politicians and scientists.
This October, it will play host to the Museums at Night festival, when it will open its doors until 9.00pm to let intrepid explorers wander through the hallowed hall in the dark of the night.
The Cellarium Cafe will also be open late with a special menu, so grab a bite after feasting your eyes on the wonders of the Abbey, which include Poet's Corner, the resting place of some of the nation's favourite poets, and the statue of Saint Wilgefortis, otherwise known as 'the bearded lady'.
Don't miss this rare opportunity to soak up the ambience of the great Abbey into the late evening.
