Westminster Abbey: Chapel of Edward the Confessor

Recommended
Beyond the walkway, head through the oratory, resting place of Henry V, hero of Agincourt. At the centre, the tomb of St Edward who died in 1066, is surrounded by those of five kings and three queens. The gilded reliquary rests on a magnificent marble pedestal by Pierre le Romain (1269). In the chapel, note the tombs of Eleanor of Castile, Henry III and Edward I, and the wood-carved Coronation throne (1301) used at all coronations since 1308 (save those of Edward V and Edward VII).
