Family Day: Building History

Family Day: Building History

Date Time Location Price

Join us to explore what it took to build the Westminster Abbey we know today and be inspired by people who helped build the history and stories we tell here.

In a great building like Westminster Abbey the stones tell a story and stories shape the building. We'll be exploring the power of stories and buildings, the seen and the unseen, and reflecting on how we can tell today’s story.

  • Hear tremendous tales with storyteller Olivia Armstrong
  • Follow a historic trail
  • Meet an important Lady from the past who will reveal stories from her time at the Abbey
  • Make a craft to help you explore the Abbey
  • Pick up a pack to continue the day at home

All activities will adhere to social distancing guidelines and will have been prepared to ensure the health and safety of visitors and staff.

Activities are suitable for children aged 5+. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

This event is being held as part of the Family Learning Festival which runs from 17th October - 1st November 2020.


Tickets

Activities are free with entry to the Abbey. Book your tickets online.
