St Margaret's Church

Commonly called 'the parish church of the House of Commons', the history of this ancient church is closely linked to that of the adjacent Westminster Abbey founded as a Benedictine Abbey in 1065 by Edward the Confessor. The original 11th century building was rebuilt in the 14th century and again in the 15th. The east window is of 16th century Flemish glass, there are modern windows by John Piper and many memorials including those to Lady Dudley, Sir Walter Raleigh and William Caxton. Many famous weddings have been celebrated here including Samuel Pepys, John Milton and Winston Churchill.
