The Abbey is no longer open for public worship, general visiting or private prayer. Meanwhile, the community of Abbey clergy are continuing to worship and pray, in-line with government guidance. They are also producing a podcast to mark key liturgical events.Find out more
For over a thousand years, Westminster Abbey has stood at the heart of British history. Almost every monarch since William The Conqueror has been crowned here, and there are over 3,300 kings, queens, scientists, poets and musicians buried or memorialised within the walls.

The Shrine of St Edward the Confessor is one of the most powerful features of the Abbey. To stand in the presence of a man who is both a saint and a monarch is awe-inspiring.
