Westminster Abbey and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Abbey remains open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily Eucharist service if you are able to travel here safely within current government guidelines.

However, for the time being we are unable to open the Abbey and St Margaret’s Church for general visiting.

Virtual tours

Building Westminster Abbey

Nine objects are explored in this STEAM themed virtual tour. Pupils will be encouraged to think about how and why the Abbey was built the way it was.

This STEAM tour is aimed at KS2 pupils with particular reference to:

  • Shape
  • Symmetry
  • Architecture

Tour created by Striking Places.

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.
