  • Visitor Information

Westminster Abbey Midnight Mass, Christmas Carols & ServicesPack inside one of London's most famous landmarks for an old-fashioned service to take you right through to Christmas Day. Westminster Abbey has been at the centre of royal and religious life in Britain since the time of William the Conqueror, who was crowned here on Christmas Day 1066 following the successful Norman invasion of the British Isles. More recently, it was where Prince William and Catherine Middleton chose to get married. It's easy to lose sight of what Christmas is all about in the sea of commercialisation, but sitting in the majestic history of the Abbey's nave will help remind you of the religious message. These awe-inspiring surroundings provide a striking backdrop for an evening of lessons and carols. Most events do not need to be booked and are free to attend but for the popular services on 23rd and 24th December you will need to book free tickets in advance. Other highlights this year include Schutz The Christmas Story on 5th December and a Christmas Concert in partnership with John Lewis on 14th December, both of which are charged and require tickets.
