Press and media photographers outside Westminster Abbey

Press passes

We manage media accreditation for major services at the Abbey.

TV/Radio

We offer filming facilities for documentaries/factual programmes which have a link to the Abbey. Filming takes place around our services and visiting so get in touch early as slots are limited. There is a fee, and we have conservation guidelines for programme makers.

Photography

Personal photography is welcome at the Abbey, although only in selected areas of the church. For more information, see our photography policy where a selection of images can also be downloaded for personal use. We are unable to offer commercial photography shoots.

Picture Library

We can send images for editorial use to your publication or website. Commercial picture enquiries, including academics and book publishers, should get in touch with the Abbey Library.
