Westminster Abbey and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Abbey will re-open for sightseeing visitors from Friday 21st May.

In the meantime, we remain open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily services. We are also open for individual prayer from 10:30am - 12:30pm, Monday to Saturday.

Worship at the Abbey

Book for Sunday Services

All are welcome to join our services but at this time we are unable to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend due to social distancing restrictions.

If you would like to attend the 11.15am Eucharist service on Sundays, you must book a ticket in advance.

Tickets are not required for our other services, but please note that we may not be able to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend so please arrive well before the start time.

Please only travel to the Abbey if you are able to do so safely within government guidelines, and we strongly discourage the use of public transport to come to the Abbey at this time of national emergency.

Why we’re asking you to book

These services are very popular, and a ticket will guarantee you entry. By booking, you’re helping to keep numbers small in our services so that all worshippers will feel safe.

Please note that in line with the Government's COVID-19 Test and Trace programme, contact details for all visitors and service attendees will be taken and held on file for a period of 21 days. Attendee details will only be used, if necessary, in conjunction with the Test and Trace programme and Westminster Abbey will not process this data for any other purpose.

Advice for those attending services

To ensure you have a safe and fulfilling time at the Abbey, please be aware of the new social distancing and hygiene measures in place.

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.
