Westminster Abbey and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Abbey is not currently open for worship or general visiting but you are welcome to visit for individual prayer at the following times:

Monday - Saturday: 10:00am - 3:00pm
Sunday: 12:30pm - 2:00pm

Our clergy are also producing regular podcasts to support worship from home.

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.
