Kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers; poets, priests, heroes and villains - the Abbey is a must-see living pageant of British history. Every year Westminster Abbey welcomes over one million visitors who want to explore this wonderful 700-year-old building. Thousands more join us for worship at our daily services. The Abbey is in the heart of London. Once inside audio guides are available in eight languages or there is the highly-popular verger-led tour.
Westminster Abbey is usually open to visitors from Monday to Saturday throughout the year. On Sundays and religious holidays such as Easter and Christmas, the Abbey is open for worship only. All are welcome to services, please click here to find out more. There is never any charge to worship at the Abbey.
The Abbey never charges people who want to worship. But we do rely almost entirely on paying visitors and tourists for our income. The costs of running the Abbey and maintaining the historic buildings are covered almost entirely from these admission fees - Westminster Abbey receives no funding from the Crown or the Church and only occasional project support from the State.
