Free Summer Holiday Family Events at Westminster Abbey


Learn to be a knight, dance the afternoon away or make a crown this summer at Westminster Abbey. Every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the summer, the kids can investigate who stole the crown jewels, travel through time or  take part in a Second World War Street party!

Some activities are led by costumed interpreters, with others craft based. Events are held outside in the beautiful setting of College Garden (but if it’s raining, head to the Education Centre). Access to College Garden is through the Cloisters via Dean’s Yard and the Education Centre is in Dean’s Yard.

LittleBird’s Top Tip: Get digital and download the Abbey app before you go – it’s free – and the narrator is the Oscar winning actor Jeremy Irons.
