During the Lumiere London festival of light around central London, one of the venues, Westminster Abbey will be opening its doors in the evening as well.
Artist Patrice Warrener will light up the Abbey’s West Towers and Great North Door with his work, The Light of the Spirit. He has lit more than 60 buildings around the world, and is known for his intricate, vibrant illuminations.
As part of the festival, Westminster Abbey will be open to visitors from 6.30pm – 9pm (last entry at 8pm) on Thursday 18th and Friday 19th January, at the special reduced entry fee of £10 for adults and £5 for children.
That compares to the usual entry fee of £22/£9 during the daytime.
The Abbey Shop and Cellarium Cafe will also be open.
Lumiere London will see more than 50 installations light up venues including the Royal Academy of Arts, the Southbank and Grosvenor Square, and takes place from 18th – 21st January 2018.
