Attending a service at Westminster Abbey or St Margaret’s Church is a special way to celebrate Christmas and every year we welcome over 12,000 worshippers. Some services are especially popular and these require tickets (free) to be booked in advance. A full list of Christmas services and opening times over the Christmas period will be published in early October.


Online bookings for our ticketed services open on this site at 7.30am on Monday 17th November. Early application is advised as tickets are booked up very quickly.
