Westminster Abbey is one of the world's greatest churches, a designated World Heritage Site and 'Royal Peculiar', which means the Dean is directly answerable to the monarch. The Coronation of Kings and Queens has taken place here since 1066, and many of the nation's Kings and Queens are buried in the Abbey. Principal among them is St Edward the Confessor, King of England from 1042 to 1066, whose shrine is at the heart of the Abbey. Also buried or memorialised here are over 3,000 great men and women from almost every century of these islands' history: statesmen and politicians, lawyers, warriors, clerics, writers, artists and musicians.
