Westminster Abbey and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Abbey remains open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily Eucharist service if you are able to travel here safely within current government guidelines.

However, for the time being we are unable to open the Abbey and St Margaret’s Church for general visiting.

Bell ringing days

The Abbey bells can usually be heard before services and in celebration of church festivals and royal occasions.

Following the latest guidelines from the Church of England and the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, ringing at the Abbey by our volunteer bell ringers is currently suspended during the coronavirus outbreak.

See the Abbey bells page for a history of bell ringing at Westminster Abbey.

You are surrounded by history at the Abbey, not like a museum where it’s just displayed, but here you are standing where history has happened.
