Broad Sanctuary, LONDON, SW1P 3PAWrite a review
Westminster Abbey was originally a Benedictine monastery. In the 11th century, it was re-founded by St Edward the Confessor. The great Romanesque abbey Edward built next to his royal palace, became his burial place shortly after it was completed. Over the centuries that followed, many more kings and queens have been buried, and many great figures commemorated in the abbey. The abbey has been the setting for nearly every coronation since that of William the Conqueror in 1066, and for numerous other royal occasions. The present building, begun by Henry III in 1245, is one of the most visited churches in the world.
