Spring Season: Fraternité

Join us for a season of events focusing on the fellowship between the UK and France, celebrating shared stories, cross-channel influence and the unity of nations. Through an immersive exhibition, music, talks and tours, uncover the relationship between these countries and their national churches, Notre-Dame and Westminster Abbey.

Spring season

Visit the Abbey

Coronations, royal weddings, kings, queens, statesmen and soldiers; poets, heroes and villains – history happens here and it’s all waiting to be discovered.
