If visiting the Abbey with a Blue Badge Guide, you do not need to book in advance. Your guide will arrange to meet you at the Abbey and you can make your payment on the day. Your guide will charge a separate fee.

Alternatively, if you would like to visit as a group without a guide, you can buy individual tickets. Please note that if you visit without a Blue Badge Guide we ask groups to divide into smaller groups of no more than 5 to avoid overcrowding.

Around the Abbey

There are many different areas of the Abbey for you to explore on your visit, including the museum, housed in the
magnificent vaulted undercroft beneath the former monks' dormitory, and the gardens within the grounds of the Abbey. Access is free with your ticket. Opening times may vary.

The Abbey receives no funding from the Crown, the Church or the State. We rely almost entirely on paying visitors to meet the day-to-day running costs of maintaining this world-renowned church. We never charge for people who wish to worship.
