Families

Every one of our historic churches has a unique story to tell.

Come and explore

Shine a light on dark, dusty corners and delve into the hidden secrets of our buildings. Listen to your voice change as you move around – try singing from the pulpit or the choir stalls, lie on the floor and gaze at the ceilings, hunt for mysterious creatures. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!

Come and enjoy

We have a programme of family events running throughout the year, from crafts to conservation, Shakespeare to science and lots in between. Check out our What’s On page to see what’s happening near you.

Come and learn together

Walk in the footsteps of your ancestors. Our historic churches are time machines, where the whole family can be transported across millennia. Their walls have witnessed all aspects of human life - from birth, marriage, hopes and dreams to work, war and death. There’s more to explore than history alone!

 

In some of our churches you’ll find Explorer Carts, filled with activities and accessories to help you get the most out of your visit.
