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.
Each year, we welcome over a million visitors to experience this remarkable site. Founded in 960AD, with the current building over 700 years old, this living, working church is a place of worship, celebration and ceremony, and is steeped in British history.
We place the highest importance on the health, safety and well-being of our worshippers, visitors, staff and volunteers. In accordance with the latest government advice the Abbey is currently closed for tourist visiting. However, we remain open for worship and you are welcome to join us at our daily services.
