Photography is not permitted inside Westminster Abbey. We believe that the unique beauty and history of the Abbey are difficult to enjoy with the distractions which widespread photography would bring; and that photography would diminish the sacred and intimate atmosphere of a building which is, first and foremost, a living, working church.

We recognise however that many visitors will want to be able to obtain photographs of their visit. We have therefore created the photo gallery below, to which new images will be added from time to time. These pictures can be downloaded for personal use.

Our photography policy

A copy of the Abbey's full photography policy can be read here. We hope you will understand the reasons for this policy and that you will still take away with you many treasured memories of your time with us. All images are © Dean and Chapter of Westminster.

Press, commercial or professional use of these images

Requests for any public, commercial or professional use should be made via email to the Press Office.
