St George's Chapel and the Knights of the Garter
Key stage 1 / Key stage 2 KNIGHTS AND CASTLES Completed during the reign of Henry VIII, who is one of ten kings buried here, St George’s Chapel has a wealth of educational interest for primary school children.
On this guided tour, they learn about the history of the Order of the Garter and see the banners of the present-day Knights of the Order; discover the location of the royal tombs and hear stories about some of their occupants; and learn about the Chapel’s role today as a Christian place of worship.
"Really great; the children really took everything in and remembered it the next day! Thank you."
