Westminster Cathedral, The Metropolitan Cathedral of the Precious Blood is the cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Westminster, London, the largest Catholic church in the UK, located in Westminster Victoria Street in the city.
This cathedral was built in 1895 and opened in 1903, and was consecrated on June 28, 1910. New Byzantine style, the clock tower is 83 meters high. For economic reasons, the interior decoration has yet to be completed. It is often considered the first Catholic church after the British Reformation, and it should be St. Patrick's Church in Soho Square.
In 1977, Queen Elizabeth II visited the Cathedral. She was the first reign of the Catholic Church after the British Reformation, but there was no ceremony. In 1995, Queen Elizabeth II visited the Cathedral again and became the first British monarch to visit Catholic ceremonies in centuries.

Westminster Abbey is also called the Collegiate Church of St. Peter at Westminster. Its status as a Church of England “Royal Peculiar” means it is used exclusively by the British royal family. No other church in England is as important and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Since 1066, nearly all important royal ceremonies have been held here. It served as the wedding venue for Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton. Furthermore, the royal tombs of England are located here. Apart from members of the royal family, many important historical figures such as Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Winston Churchill and, most recently, Stephen Hawking are also buried here.
