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.
A new experience
Climb the Weston Tower to the Galleries – it’s all part of your visit.
The Galleries are a medieval space where room is limited so admission is by timed ticket (adults £5.00, children under 17 free), which is bought in combination with an Abbey entry ticket.

Saturday (May to August): 9.30am-2.30pm
