Only England’s true monarchs are allowed to get married at Westminster Abbey, so The Crown’s Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip (portrayed by Matt Smith) said their royal “I do’s” at Ely Cathedral, an Anglican church near Cambridge. Built in 1083, the Norman style basilica boasts grand cast iron doors, splendid stained glass windows, and towering archways—perfect to stand in for the iconic abbey church in London. You’re free to enter Ely Cathedral daily, but take a peek at the schedule of activities on their website for an unbothered trip. Splurge a little extra to see the entirety of the church, which features the whole ground floor, the Octagon and Lantern towers, and the National Stained Glass Museum.
