Edwardtide

Remembering Edward, king and saint

Illuminated manuscript showing St Edward the Confessor

During Edwardtide, we celebrate the life of St Edward the Confessor, King of England 1042–1066 and the re-founder of Westminster Abbey. St Edward was canonised in 1161, and to this day, pilgrims come to pray at his shrine.

Details of our October 2022 celebrations will be announced in the summer.
