Westmindster Abbey is the traditional place for the coronation of the English monarchs since William the Conqueror in 1066. The gothic cathedral is 170 m long, 25 m wide and 34 m high. Many of the country's kings and queens, artists and scientists are buried here but there is no great man in the English culture who wouldn't get at least a memorial plate in the abbey.
