Westminster Abbey was one of the most powerful churches in Catholic Christendom before transforming into a Protestant icon of British national and imperial identity.

Celebrating the 750th anniversary of the consecration of the current Abbey church building, acclaimed historian and President of the British Academy Sir David Cannadine, offers a fascinating exploration of Westminster Abbey’s thousand-year history. David looks at the Abbey from its architecture and monuments; its Catholic monks and Protestant clergy; its place in religious and political revolutions; its relationship to the monarchy and royal court; its estates and educational endeavours; its congregations; to its tourists in the Twenty-First Century.
