Westminster Abbey Cloisters

Day out location essentials

This part of the Abbey is free to enter.  (The charge for the main part of the abbey is £16 for adults, and £6 for children aged between 11 - 18).  The Cloister were, in pre-Reformation days, one of the busiest parts of the monastic precincts and, with windows filled with glass, rushes strewn on the floor and braziers burning, would have been cosier than they seem today. They were used by the monks for meditation and exercise, besides providing access to the main monastic buildings.

Each of the four Cloisters is approximately 100 feet in length, dating mainly from the 13th to the 15th centuries. The Cloisters were rebuilt after a Great Fire of 1298.
