Westminster Abbey is working in partnership with DisabledGo, to produce a detailed pan-disability Accessibility Checker for the Abbey. The accessibility information in the guide aims to assist potential visitors with disabilities to Westminster Abbey so they can find out about access in advance. Westminster Abbey has been visited and assessed in person by a highly trained DisabledGo surveyor, who has looked at a whole range of accessibility features. Below you will find the accessibility information for each area of Westminster Abbey.
There is no parking available at Westminster Abbey, therefore it is recommended that you travel there by train or by bus. Alternatively, taxis are able to drop off customers at the Sanctuary, at the west end of the Abbey.
