Virtual tours

Building Westminster Abbey

Nine objects are explored in this STEAM themed virtual tour. Pupils will be encouraged to think about how and why the Abbey was built the way it was.

This STEAM tour is aimed at KS2 pupils with particular reference to:

  • Shape
  • Symmetry
  • Architecture

Tour created by Striking Places.

The Shrine of St Edward the Confessor is one of the most powerful features of the Abbey. To stand in the presence of a man who is both a saint and a monarch is awe-inspiring.

The Reverend Christopher Stoltz - Minor Canon
