Every Coronation since 1066 has taken place in Westminster Abbey or the previous building on the site, the Norman Abbey.
In the 13th century, Henry III demolished the Norman Abbey and briefed Henry de Reyns to build a great abbey for the coronation and burial of monarchs. Indeed many kings are buried there including Henry III himself, Edward
I, Richard II, Henry V and Elizabeth I. A memorial to the Unknown Warrior is one of a total of 3,000
acknowledgements in Westminster Abbey.
Today regular services are held in the Abbey.
