Photograph of Wesminter Abby by Frederick Henry Evans (1853-1943). Westminster Abbey was constructed between the 13th and 16th centuries. The Abbey houses the shrine of St Edward the Confessor, the tombs of kings and queens, and countless memorials to the famous and the great. It has been the setting for every Coronation since 1066 and for numerous other royal occasions. Today it is still a church dedicated to regular worship and to the celebration of great events.
