Welcoming UK schools

Explore the Abbey

A school visit is a great way to discover Westminster Abbey. We offer guided tours, workshops, self-led visits, outreach, and video-conferencing. We’ve developed these activities to cover topics on the National Curriculum from EYFS to Key Stage 5, including subjects such as RE, History, English, STEM, and the arts.

School Travel Awards 2019/20 Winner for Best Venue for History Learning

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.
