Venue Description

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.


Our visitor entrance is the North door, where disabled visitors can bypass any queue. Some areas of the Abbey may be dimly lit; much of the Abbey floor and steps are uneven so sensible footwear is advised; there is low doorway access to some chapels. Some areas are also unavoidably inaccessible to people permanently confined to wheelchairs and we offer free admission to such visitors and carers. We have our own wheelchairs available for use. A Touch Tour is available for visually impaired visitors in large-print or Braille. The Abbey is equipped with a hearing loop system.
