10th Jan Westminster Abbey
Join our Blue Badge-led group (one in the morning or a repeated one in the afternoon) for an in-depth guided tour of the Abbey. It will take you from the shrine of Edward the Confessor and the tomb of the unknown warrior to Poets’ Corner and the sublimely beautiful fan ceiling of the Henry VIII Chapel. See how the medieval architects created a theatre for coronations and discover some of the Abbey’s most curious secrets.
After meeting at Waterloo Station we shall take the Jubilee Line to Westminster where we will meet our Blue Badge guide. There will be time for you to buy coffee (or a light lunch if you are in the afternoon group) if you wish, before we begin our tour which will last for approx. 11⁄2- 2 hours.
You will then be free (possibly to visit the nearby St. Margaret’s Westminster, the parish church of Parliament) before returning home.
