Explore a place rich in history
Explore a place that's touched the lives of kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers, poets, priests, heroes and villains since 960AD. Westminster Abbey has been the coronation church since 1066 and is the resting place of more than 3,000 great Britons.
We’re open to visitors most days, but as Westminster Abbey is a living working church, we may need to close some areas off to the public at times.
You can view our full opening times to see which areas are open on the day you visit.
