Event details

The Abbey, one of Britain’s greatest medieval buildings and among the best-known churches in the world, has a history stretching back over a thousand years.

Ranging from the 13th Century shrine of St. Edward, and the Renaissance splendor of the Lady Chapel, to the literary memorial of Poets’ Corner, and the statues of 20th century martyrs, the Abbey contains a remarkable collection of historic artefacts, treasures in stained glass, furniture, sculpture, textiles, and wall paintings.  Many of the most significant individuals in British history are remembered here through their tombs and memorials.

Please note: this interactive and hands-on event is hosted online, which means you get to enjoy it from the comfort of your living room, patio or kitchen table! An access link will be provided prior to the start of the event.
