Westminster Abbey is #14 in our London Bucket List

It's summer... you want to take your partner to a romantic movie... but you don't fancy sitting indoors next to someone crunching on a bucket of popcorn all night. So what can you do? How about watching a big blockbuster movie at Westminster Abbey instead? (And no, that's not a typo!)

Well... that's what it's advertised as, but it's actually being screened round the side in Dean's Yard. But it's still a very pretty place to watch a movie with the Abbey towering up behind.

Tonight's movie is the classic comedy Some Like It Hot (U, 116 mins) starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon.

Note: Be aware that there's limited seating capacity so advanced booking is recommended. It's also recommended that you bring your own blanket to sit on (or you can pre-order one when you book). Premium tickets will include a better seating position and a complimentary drink at the bar. Bear in mind that bad weather will not stop the screening going ahead, so prepare for a bit of drizzle and cold. (This is London, after all!)
