Westminster Abbey, London

Westminster Abbey is London's premiere church, part of the Church of England.
It was built by Edward the Confessor and opened in 1065.
In 1066, it saw its first coronation, that of William the Conqueror.
Since then, every British sovereign has been crowned in the abbey except Edward V and Edward VIII. Many are also buried there, and it is crowded with the tombs and memorials to other famous Britons.
