Westminster Abbey's real name is "Collegiate Church of St.Peter at Westminster." There has been a church on this site since the 7th century. Nearly every English king and queen since William I has been crowned in Westminster, and 18 of them are buried here. England's most notable statesmen and distinguished subjects have been given burial in the Abbey since the 14th century. In the Poets' Corner in the south transept you'll find the tombs of Chaucer, Browning, Tennyson, and other great English poets.
