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.
Group visiting is not available at this time.
During normal opening hours, we welcome guided tour groups of up to 30 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. To book a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, visit Guide London or the British Guild of Tourist Guides.
We have many special services throughout the year at the Abbey, so some tour details might change. If you’re making a special visit to the Abbey, please check entry times beforehand.
