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.

You are surrounded by history at the Abbey, not like a museum where it’s just displayed, but here you are standing where history has happened.
