Bank Holidays in London

Anyone know what sights are open on Bank Holidays? Specifically, will Westminster Abbey be open on May 25, 2015? I see lots of info about things may NOT be open but nothing definitive about which things are not open.

The Abbey closes for visiting one hour after the published entry
closure time, in order to prepare for Evensong. Visitors wishing to
explore the Abbey for longer are therefore recommended to arrive well
in advance of the published entry closure time

During busy periods it may be necessary to arrive at the Abbey well in
advance of the advertised closing time, as there may be a queue. If
the queue is lengthy visitors will be advised at least 15 minutes
prior to closing as to the likelihood of entry.

Sights are generally open on bank holidays. In general, in city centres, all but the smallest shops and restaurants tend to be open on most bank holidays nowadays. The only days where almost everything still closes are Easter and Christmas.
