Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey is a Gothic church that is the traditional place of coronation and burial for English monarchs. The formal name for Westminster Abbey is the Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster.

Westminster Abbey is simply a church owned directly by the royal family. It is neither a parish church nor a cathedral. The Archbishop of Canterbury is the traditional cleric in the coronation ceremonies.

The Abbey contains some of the most magnificent medieval architecture in Great Britain. The oldest part of the Abbey dates back to 1050 and because of its royal connections it was spared King Henry VIII’s wrath and general assault on monastic structures during the Reformation. It is located next to the Houses of Parliament in the Westminster neighbourhood of London. Read more about Westminster Abbey
