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.
