Families

Westminster Abbey is a wonderful place for you to discover as a family. Whether you want to become a royal for the day, create a new and exciting piece of art or sing with our world famous choir, there is something for everyone. We offer a varied programme throughout the year to help your family explore a thousand years of history. Join us in the Abbey every Saturday and during school holidays, or online on the first Saturday of the month.

What can families do at Westminster Abbey?

Beyond our programmed family events, we have a free Family Trail to help you discover the Abbey — just ask our staff for one when you arrive. Children who use the trail can collect a free badge from our shop on the way out.

You might like to explore the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries with a trail as well — please note you will need to purchase a separate ticket for this space.
