Edward the Confessor rebuilt the Abbey in 1066 on the site of a Benedictine Abbey. Now the site of the famous Westminster Abbey, it is visited by people all over the word.

A ghostly monk has been seen floating above the floor, “Father Benedictus,” as he is known, is often witnessed around the cloisters at around five or six in the evening. He appears quite real and solid and often holds conversations with visitors. In 1900 it is reported the ghost monk appeared to visitors for twenty-five minutes as he drifted around the cloisters before disappearing into a wall. In 1932 two American visitors said the had held a long conversation with the polite ghost.
