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.

How is power balanced around Parliament Square between the Legislature, the Judiciary and the Executive? What of the soft power of religion and the monarchy?
