Westminster Abbey - formally called the Collegiate Church of St. Peter, Westminster - was originally built by Edward the Confessor in the mid 11th century. The building is of Anglo-French Gothic style, and it is the traditional site for coronations and burials of English monarchs. Many famous Englishmen are also buried here, and the Abbey was an important location in Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. Entry to the Abbey costs GBP10 for adults and GBP6 for children (2006 prices).
