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.

Leave a legacy

For over a thousand years, Westminster Abbey has stood at the heart of British history. Almost every monarch since William The Conqueror has been crowned here, and there are over 3,300 kings, queens, scientists, poets and musicians buried or memorialised within the walls.

Your legacy can ensure our legacy lives on. By leaving a gift in your Will, you can help preserve the Abbey as a place of worship and wonder for future generations. 

A solicitor or your bank can help you make a Will that includes a gift to the Abbey. By keeping it updated, you can be sure your wishes will be carried out.
