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.
As well as being a place of worship, Westminster Abbey has become a treasure house of artefacts. This is also where some of the most significant people in Britain's history are buried or commemorated.More about the Abbey’s history
