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.
It is neither superheroes nor automata but human beings who pace the corridors of Westminster and Whitehall, often feeling anything but powerful. Bound by party politics, the executive, the minister, public opinion, the media: sometimes these constraints are real, sometimes not. Who, or what, is running the country? How is power balanced around Parliament Square between the Legislature, the Judiciary and the Executive? What of the soft power of religion and the monarchy?
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.
