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.
Discover the Abbey’s awe-inspiring grand organ at our Summer Organ Festival each July and August.
Hear the magnificent five-manual Harrison & Harrison instrument come to life at our Tuesday evening concerts, which feature the Abbey’s own organists and leading performers from around the world, and find out more about the ‘king of instruments’ at our Discovery Events.
We regret that owing to the continuing COVID-19 coronavirus crisis, the 2020 festival (including performances by Vincent Dubois and Thomas Trotter) will not be able to take place as originally scheduled. We are currently working with the artists to try and reschedule their performances for the next edition of the festival and we will publish details here as soon as they are available.
You are surrounded by history at the Abbey, not like a museum where it’s just displayed, but here you are standing where history has happened.
