WESTMINSTER ABBEY LIBRARY
Wednesday 30 January 2019

Cost: £8   Maximum No: 20

The historic library of the Dean and Chapter dates from the 16th century and the archives or muniment collection go back to the tenth century when the Abbey was founded as a Monastery.

We will have a guided tour of these wonderful records which date to the present day.

This is a historic building, space is limited and bulky bags are not permitted.  The library is on the first floor reached by a stone staircase of 25 steps.  

Eating and drinking in the library, including bottled water, is not permitted.  Photography is also not permitted.  Please therefore make sure you understand these few rules and feel able to cope with the steps.

Meet just through the ticket barrier at Westminster underground station on the Jubilee, District and Circle lines no later than 10.40am for a short walk to the Abbey ready for an 11am start.  It is possible our bags will be searched.
