Since our founding by Benedictine monks, hospitality has always been at the heart of the Abbey. We have held royal weddings, state occasions, and every coronation since 1066.
Now you can hire an historic space for your next corporate event.
Hire a venue
Host a dinner or reception in one of our unique heritage spaces, set within the Abbey grounds - and offer your guests a private tour of the Abbey.
One of the newest event spaces in London, The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries boasts a view which John Betjeman declared 'the best view in Europe'. You can now host an exclusive drinks reception in this unique and glorious place.
In the warmer months, treat your guests to an atmospheric event in this elegant open-air arcade. The 13th Century cloisters adjoin the main part of the Abbey (the nave) and overlook a grass quadrangle (garth).
College Garden - Summer
Host your summer event in one of London’s best kept secrets, a 900-year-old garden, thought to be the oldest in England. You and your guests will enjoy views of the Abbey and Victoria Tower, part of the Palace of Westminster.
College Garden - Out of season
College Garden is an impressive and flexible events venue with beautiful views of nearby historic buildings. This exclusive walled garden has a cosy and welcoming atmosphere all year round.
Stage evening events in the Cellarium, a medieval undercroft where 14th Century monks stored their provisions. With its warm ambiance and stunning vaulted ceiling it’s the perfect venue to impress your guests.
The Cellarium Terrace
This contemporary event space blends traditional and modern architecture, with views across to the Abbey’s west towers. You and your guests can also access a small, private outdoor area.
Hidden above the entrance to the cloisters, Cheyneygates was once the home of Edward IV’s queen, Elizabeth Woodville, and was the birthplace of her son, Edward V.
