Group visits

Visiting the Abbey in a group is a wonderful day out. We welcome private tour groups as well as groups from schools or universities throughout the year.

Current group visit arrangements 

We currently welcome guided tour groups of up to 20 visitors when accompanied by a Blue Badge Tourist Guide.

Blue Badge Tourist Guides offer specialist, private tours in more than 30 languages and will charge a separate fee.

Visitors tend to book a Blue Badge Tourist Guide first and then purchase tickets to the Abbey.

To book a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, visit Guide London or the British Guild of Tourist Guides.

Entry and availability 

All entry until further notice is via the North Green/North Door only. Opening days vary so please check the entry times for up to date information.
