Writers and thinkers
After Geoffrey Chaucer was buried here, Poets’ Corner became the place where many other creative people were buried and remembered. This space in the Abbey’s South Transept remembers people who have explored the world in all sorts of creative ways. Stretch your creative muscles with these videos.
Visiting the Abbey
Westminster Abbey is a brilliant place for families to visit. There are animals to spot and stories to discover as you walk round. With over 3,000 people buried and remembered in the Abbey, there really is something for everyone to get excited about.
We run family activities on a variety of themes on Saturdays throughout the year and during local school holidays too. Explore the Abbey and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Galleries with help from our exciting family trails.
