Bell ringing days

The Abbey bells can usually be heard before services and in celebration of church festivals and royal occasions.

Following the latest guidelines from the Church of England and the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, ringing at the Abbey by our volunteer bell ringers is currently suspended during the coronavirus outbreak.

See the Abbey bells page for a history of bell ringing at Westminster Abbey.

It’s very hard not to be enthusiastic working at the Abbey. If this place doesn’t make you smile I don’t know what will.
