Virtual tours

The Abbey and national memory

The Abbey is the resting place of more than 3000 great Britons: what better place to explore the concept of British Values?

Eighteen hotspots marking key burials or commemorations are explored in this virtual tour. Pupils are prompted to link the stories of those commemorated to the five British Values of democracy, individual liberty, rule of law, respect and tolerance.

This Citizenship tour is aimed at KS2 pupils.

Tour created by Striking Places.

At different times of the day, or in different seasons, the light falling in the Abbey will light up something that you have walked past a million times and never seen before.

Vanessa, Head of Conservation
