Westminster Abbey

Place of Worship London, United Kingdom

The House of Kings Westminster Abbey

This gothic cathedral is the site of Kings and Queens’ Crownings and great British personalities’ graves. Over the centuries Westminster Abbey hosted important national events, such as William and Kate's wedding in 2011 and Princess Diana's funeral in 1997.

The largest Gothic cathedral in Britain, with its 34 meters long central nave. The aisles host tombs, busts and commemorative monuments. The Poets' Corner is dedicated to great names in British literature such as Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Kipling. Consecrated in 1065 by King Edward, it was called "west minster", west church, to distinguish it from St Paul's Cathedral, at the east of the city. Edward was buried in the newly consecrated church and canonized in 1611 as Saint Edward the Confessor. Even today its reliquary is one of the most important tomb monument in the Abbey.
