St George’s Chapel in the 16th and 17th Centuries

Students participating in a learning session at St Georges Chapel, Windsor Castle

Key stage 3 TUDORS AND STUARTS  In this guided tour of St George’s Chapel we focus on Henry VIII and Charles I, who are buried in the Chapel and whose reigns changed the religious and political landscape of their time, and on the history of the Chapel during the Civil War. The tour links to KS3 History and to cross-curricular studies including RE and complements the session Changing Times: the Tudors and Stuarts. The role of the Chapel today as a Christian place of worship can also be included if of interest.

“Fact and fun packed visit – a positive experience for all.”
Head of History
