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 led by Chapel Stewards, 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. The tour complements many of our sessions including Medieval knights wanted: apply here!, What were castles for? and Was armour heavy? Let's find out...

"Really great; the children really took everything in and remembered it the next day! Thank you."
