Westminster Abbey and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Abbey is no longer open for public worship, general visiting or private prayer. Meanwhile, the community of Abbey clergy, privately and following guidance given, will sustain the worship of a building that has been a witness to God’s grace and glory for over a thousand years.

Book a video-conference and bring Westminster Abbey into your classroom

A group of secondary school student participate in a Westminster Abbey video conference

We offer live, interactive video-conferencing sessions led by one of our Education Officers. The session can be tailored to the needs of your class, and run them at a time that best suits you. Video-conferencing sessions last around 30–40 minutes.

Popular themes for KS3, KS4 and Post-16 students include:

  • Symbols of Worship
  • Coronations
  • Edward the Confessor
  • Tudors at the Abbey
  • Remembrance.

Your school will need to provide a screen, computer, camera, microphone, and some speakers. We'll connect to you via Skype.

How to book

Please email us for more information.

At different times of the day, or in different seasons, the light falling in the Abbey will light up something that you have walked past a million times and never seen before.
