St George's Chapel tour: Henry VIII's final resting place

Children participating in a schools' session at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle

Where did Catherine of Aragon say her prayers? Where is Henry VIII buried and with whom? Where can you see a portcullis beside red and white roses? Children find the answers to these and many other questions about Tudor history on this guided tour of St George's Chapel led by Chapel Stewards, which complements the session Meet the Monarch: Holbein's Henry.

"This talk introduced the history of chapel, Tudors & Plantaganets in a way the group understood well, provoking questions from several group members which were answered in a manner that was suitable and understandable for the children."
