Westminister Abbey Advance Reservations for Entry Time

My wife and I will be in London at the end of May and after experiencing the entry line at Westminister Abbey several years ago want to know if an advance reservation can be made. The line was so long on our last visit that we had to rush through in order to make it to another obligation on time. We want to do a Verger led tour and can't tell if by phoning a set entry and tour time can be reserved. Is there a way to make an advance reservation? Thanks

No there is not unless you are attending a service or wishing to spend a moment in private prayer - westminster-abbey.org/visit-us/entry-charges

Thanks, I was afraid this was the case.

The only way I know of to skip the line is to do the London Walks tour ,but then of course you'd have one of their guides and not the Verger.

Or just allow more time at Westminster Abbey and don't crowd your schedule with "obligations".

Nope. We have annual passes for entry and can't even jump the queue so to speak.
