Allow our fantastic kid-friendly guide to bring you face-to-face with centuries of British history as you travel through time to meet monarchs, poets, writers, scientists and explorers. Our guide will make sure both you and your children are entertained throughout your visit, with fascinating stories and activities suitable for kids of all ages, as history comes to life before your very eyes!
Westminster Abbey is a splendid mixture of architectural styles and it is considered the finest example of Early English Gothic (1190–1300). It is the site of coronations and other ceremonies of national significance and not merely a beautiful place of worship. The abbey also provides a remarkable "who's who" of British history.
For centuries, some of the nations's most important figures have been buried here, including 17 monarchs, from Henry III (who died in 1272) to George II (1760).
It stands just west of the Houses of Parliament in the Greater London borough of Westminster. Situated on the grounds of a former Benedictine monastery, it was refounded as the Collegiate Church of St. Peter in Westminster by Queen Elizabeth I in 1560. In 1987 Westminster Abbey, St. Margaret’s Church, and the Houses of Parliament were collectively designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
During this private kid-friendly tour you will see the The Coronation Chair, which is the  chair that was commissioned by King Edward I in 1296 and has been the official chair used in the coronation of every British monarch since 1308; the Chapter House, where monks used to gather to pray and plan their day of work.; the Poet’s Corner, which hosts many graves and dedications to the greats of English literature. Geoffrey Chaucer, Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling and Thomas Hardy are all buried here, with dedications to writers such as Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, the Bronte sisters, TS Eliot and Jane Austen. You will also visit the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, The Lady Chappel; the Royal Tombs and the College Garden that has been cultivated for over 900 years!

This tour was amazing! Our tour guide, Denisa, was just perfect for our family. She was engaging, knowledgeable and kept our 7 year old fully involved and kept us moving throughout the tour, pausing to share her knowledge. We enjoyed spending these few hours with her and felt that we walked away learning many things we had not known about Westminster Abbey! She made it easy to understand even for our 7 year old who asked a lot of questions! Ask for Denisa, you will be thankful that you did!
