Westminster Abbey (more formally Collegiate Church of Saint Peter at Westminster) has been used as the place of coronation for monarchs since 1066 (starting with William the Conqueror). It is the resting place of more that 3,000 famous Britains - including monarchs, scientists, politicians and poets. The abbey is a place for celebration, worship and ceremony.
