Westminster Abbey is one of the world's great churches, with a history stretching back over a thousand years. A royal church from its first beginnings, it still has the shrine of its principal founder, the Anglo-Saxon king and saint, Edward the Confessor, at the heart of the building. Since Edward's death in 1066 his successors have come to this church to be crowned, and seventeen of them lie buried within its walls. More than a million people now visit Westminster Abbey each year, and millions more across the globe know it through the televising of events like the Royal Wedding.
