Number of visits to Westminster Abbey in the United Kingdom (UK) from 2010 to 2018 (in 1,000s)

Number of visitors to Westminster Abbey in the United Kingdom (UK) 2010-2018 In 2018 approximately 1.5 million people visited Westminster Abbey, one of the United Kingdom’s most iconic churches in the heart of London. Since 2010, the number of visitors to the abbey has fluctuated between a high of 2.02 million in 2013 and a low of 1.19 million in 2014. The abbey itself lies very close to the Houses of Parliament and is famous for being the burial place for several monarchs, as well as the location where they are coronated.  
Tower of London the top paid attraction

Westminster Abbey was the third most visited paid tourist attraction in London in 2017, with only the Tower of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral having more visitors at 2.84 and 1.57 million respectively. The Tower of London saw the highest number of visitors pass through its doors in 2014, when over 3.07 million people paid to see its exhibitions, including the famous Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom.

Museums tower over the rest 

While Westminster Abbey is undoubtedly a popular attraction, the 1.5 million visitors it received pales in comparison to the 5.86 million people who visited the Tate Modern in 2018. This made the Tate the most visited tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, followed by the British Museum at 5.82 million visitors, and The National Gallery at 5.73 million visitors.
