Every purchase helps support the ministry and fabric of the Abbey


Westminster Abbey has many identities – as a place of worship, theatre of state, resting place of kings and memorial to statesmen and poets. The internationally acclaimed artist Alexander Creswell captures its many facets in this stunning set of watercolours, each annotated with insightful text and his own personal reflections on the Abbey and the indelible impression it has left on him.

The tranquillity and shifting light of the Abbey’s cloisters, chapels and library are depicted here, alongside the famous monuments of Poets’ Corner and spectacular views from the Triforium. Also glimpsed are the moments in the life of the Abbey, from the celebration of the Eucharist, to the warmth and intimacy of a carol service, to the magnificent wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

This beautiful book, which represents the culmination of a project that commenced in 2011 with the Royal Wedding, will make a treasured souvenir for anyone who has admired the sights and spirit of the Abbey.
