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.

General donations

You can make a general donation that will go where it’s needed most. We don’t receive any funding from the Church, the Crown or the Government so your donation can make an important difference.

Music and choir school

From 10th century monks’ plainsong to today’s choral services with our acclaimed choir and organists, music has always resonated throughout the Abbey. Our historic choir school was founded in the 16th century under Henry VIII and provides a quality education programme for our 36 young choristers.

Support a tradition of music


There are a thousand years of history and faith to explore at Westminster Abbey. Your generous donation will help us inspire children and young people from the UK and beyond through our learning programmes.

St Margaret's Church

Located between Westminster Abbey and The Houses of Parliament, and commonly called The Parish Church of the House of Commons, St Margaret’s has witnessed many historic events. Your support can help us preserve its place within the Abbey’s history and grounds.

Give to St Margaret's Church

I feel very privileged to work here. I take so much pride in working for a beautiful place like the Abbey, it’s unique.
