In 6 trips and a total of more than 7 weeks in London, I have yet to visit Westminster Abbey. But now I would really like to see the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries, which requires entry into the Abbey and a separate £5 ticket, if I am reading the website correctly. I am afraid my husband will balk at the £50 necessary (2x £20 for senior entry, plus 2 x £5 for the Galleries). But we will be eligible for the 2-4-1 offers as we will have the required train tickets into and out of London. This means we cannot skipmthe line but will have to join the general queue.
So, what is the best time to go? We will be staying very nearby, so first thing in the morning will be easy. Is that the best strategy? Plan to queue around 9 for the 9:30 entry? This will be on a weekday in late May. We have tickets for Shakespeare at the Globe that night, so we don't want to go in late afternoon as Rick suggests.
Thanks for your help.
