Westminster Abbey: Behind Closed Doors on SBS – Westminster Abbey is opening its doors to reveal the inner workings of one of the UK’s most renowned and historical buildings.

This six-part series follows the internal workings of the Abbey’s devoted staff as they prepare for special services, hold daily worship, and manage a famous world heritage site.

Exploring everything from traditions and rituals to tourism and the royals, we go behind the scenes of this busy modern-day community to discover a place at the heart of Britain for almost 1000 years.

An abbey for all! Upstairs the Abbey bell ringers are poised to ring for the Queen’s birthday, nerves are brewing, an intrigued crowd is gathering outside to listen.

Part of Heritage Cleaner Vittoria’s job is to care for the tomb of a single unidentified soldier, killed on the Western Front during the first world war.
