You can take this Detour at any time.
This Detour briefly stops inside a small alcove within Westminster Abbey. If you begin before 3:30pm, you’ll be able to enter and appreciate that stop. However, one can also take the tour after 3:30pm. It is also an enjoyable walk at night.
This Detour finishes outside a pub frequented by prime ministers, politicians and civil servants. If you’d like to drop in for a drink then make sure you’ve a few pounds in your pocket.
