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.Find out more
We offer a varied programme of events for families all year round. Westminster Abbey has a thousand years of history for you to explore, discover and learn about together. Whether you want to become a royal for the day, create a new and exciting piece of art or sing with our world famous choir, there is something for everyone.
We have a large team of volunteers in the Learning Department supporting our family and school visitors. Volunteers supervise art and craft activities, lead tours and assist with workshops. If you are interested in volunteering with us please get in touch.Email us
