Just west of Houses of Parliament on Parliament Square sits the imposing Westminster Abbey, one of the most important sites in British history and an incredibly popular tourist attraction. While royal residences have shifted across the city, Westminster Abbey has remained the spiritual heart of the monarchy since its construction by Edward the Confessor in the 11th century. Since then, it has been the place of coronation (and frequently, burial) of British monarchs. Many royal weddings have taken place here too, including the most recent nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. A visit to the Abbey wouldn’t be complete without paying tribute to the many illustrious minds buried here, including Charles Dickens, Henry Purcell, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Geoffrey Chaucer, who was the first to be interred in the now famous Poets’ Corner.
