Stop, stare and wonder. Step in and let the Abbey take your breath away as you contemplate 1000 years of living history. Since King Edward the Confessor built his church in the 11th century, the Abbey has been a fundamental part of the history of the nation. It has held 39 coronations since 1066, 16 royal weddings and is the final resting place for 17 monarchs. Be sure not to miss the Coronation Chair and the beautiful Lady Chapel!
A visit to the Abbey is also a celebration of the nation’s greatest achievers. Discover Newton’s tomb and Darwin’s resting place and feel the power of poetry in Poets’ Corner. Don’t forget to wonder at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, a tribute to the fallen in international military conflict.
