Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey (official name The Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster) is located to the west of the Palace of Westminster in central London. In 11 century King Edward the Confessor rebuilt St Peter's Abbey in order to provide himself with a royal burial church. At that time it was the first church in England built in the Norman Romanesque style.Rebuilt later, nowadays Westminster Abbey is a good example of Gothic style architecture. It has served as a traditional place for coronation and burial site for British monarchs. The church has hosted sixteen royal weddings starting with King Henry I who married Matilda of Scotland in 1100 and finishing with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, who married Catherine Middleton in 2011. The list of famous people buried or commemorated in Westminster Abbey includes Oliver Cromwell, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, William Blake to name just a few.
