The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Galleries

High above the Abbey floor, the Galleries in the beautiful 13th century triforium display our greatest treasures and tell the story of our thousand-year history.


The Galleries are a medieval space where room is limited so admission is by timed ticket, which is bought in combination with an Abbey entry ticket.

Opening times

Monday-Friday: 10.00am-4.00pm
Saturday: 9.30-3.30pm
Sunday: Galleries closed, Abbey open for services

Last entry to the Galleries is one hour before closing.


Where are the Galleries?

The Galleries are 16 metres (52 feet) above the floor of the Abbey. Your journey starts at the Weston Tower. See amazing views of the Palace of Westminster and the medieval Chapter House on your way up – it’s all part of the experience.

Where are the Galleries?

It’s a privilege to live and work here – the Abbey really is the heart of the country and its history.
