Westminster Abbey Association

My family and I have been so fortunate to visit the Abbey many times over the years, for services, concerts and wildly atmospheric evening tours - it is hands down my favourite building in London, and there is within the walls a calm and peace I can never resist. There was never any doubt that I would join and support the Association when it was set up. I am thrilled it exists and I look forward to remaining a member for many years to come.

Susan, member since 2015
