Tour Westminster Abbey with Google Street View

If you've ever wanted to tour Westminster Abbey but can't afford the £20 admission price (or, y'know, go to one of its many church services), Google has you covered. The giant church has become the latest London landmark to be photographed for Street View, allowing you to explore its tombs, shrines and pointed arches from the comfort of your desk (or mobile device).

Westminster Abbey is home to the graves of kings, queens and notable English figures, including Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. It also hosts the grave of The Unknown Warrior -- an unidentified British soldier killed during the First World War -- the only grave on which it is forbidden to walk, and has been the backdrop for every royal coronation since 1066.

If that's not enough to get you clicking, I don't know what is. The Street View tour is hosted on both Google Maps and Westminster Abbey's own website, which provides more information on the sights inside.
