The Abbey will be closed to visitors from Tuesday 25th April to Sunday 7th May in preparation for the coronation of HM King Charles III. During that period some services will take place in St Margaret’s Church.
In the meantime you can find out about the history of coronations, the monarchs and the objects and spaces used during the ceremony.
The Shrine of St Edward the Confessor is one of the most powerful features of the Abbey. To stand in the presence of a man who is both a saint and a monarch is awe-inspiring.
