Edwardtide

Remembering St Edward, 13th-18th October 2020

Illuminated manuscript showing St Edward the Confessor

During Edwardtide, we celebrate the life of St Edward the Confessor, King of England 1042–1066 and the re-founder of Westminster Abbey. St Edward was canonised in 1161, and to this day, pilgrims come to pray at his shrine.

We will announce our programme of services and events as soon as possible.

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