Arrive at 10.30am for time to buy morning refreshments. To do full justice to the Abbey we split the group in half - each for a morning and afternoon activity: an in depth Blue Badge guided tour of Westminster Abbey and a period of free time to explore the Supreme Court and Parliament’s Parish Church, both within eyesight of the Abbey.

 

Our tour shows how the mediaeval architects created a theatre for coronations and shows you some of the Abbeys most curious secrets. You’ll also see the Shrine of Edward the Confessor and the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior. In the Henry VII Chapel beneath a sublimely beautiful fan vaulted ceiling, the banners of the Knights and Dames Grand Cross of The Most Honourable Order of the Bath hang. We visit Poets Corner and see where the ashes of Professor Stephen Hawking were interred next to Sir Isaac Newton.

 

You’ll have time to visit St Margaret’s Westminster which is the Parish Church of Parliament and the Supreme Court - the highest court in the land set up to replace the Law Lords. You could even visit Parliament and lobby your MP! You certainly aren’t going to be short of things to do. There’s time at the end of the afternoon to gather together to buy refreshments before making tracks for home at 4.30pm.
