Westminster Abbey takes part in Cathedrals at Night

Westminster Abbey will offer free entry to visitors at a special Wednesday Lates evening on 18th November.

The Abbey will be open from 4.30pm - 7.00pm (last entry at 6.00pm) as part of Cathedrals at Night, a project that will see all 42 Church of England cathedrals, as well as the cathedrals in Wales and the Isle of Man, open their doors free of charge. Run by the Association of English Cathedrals, the initiative is designed to allow visitors to explore some of the county’s most beautiful buildings and offer them a taste of cathedral life.

Visitors will be able to explore highlights of the Abbey including Poets' Corner, the Coronation Chair and the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, where a solider from the battlefields of northern France was buried 100 years ago, in November 1920.

Cathedrals at Night

It’s very hard not to be enthusiastic working at the Abbey. If this place doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
