Westminster Abbey

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The stone Abbey was built around 1045–1050 by King Edward the Confessor and was later rebuilt again by Henry III in 1245, who had selected the site for his burial: it was consecrated on December 28, 1065, only a week before the Confessor’s death and subsequent funeral. It was the site of the last coronation prior to the Norman Invasion, that of his successor King Harold.
