Tours of St Alfege Crypt Saturday 15 April 2017
Sat 15 April 2017, 10:00 – 10:45 BST
A rare chance to visit the crypt of historic St Alfege Church in the heart of Greenwich. As the Tall Ships will be setting sail from Greenwich to Quebec, Canada, we are running tours of the crypt so that visitors can see the burial vault of General James Wolfe as well as the vaults of other historical figures connected with Canada.
We will be running tours throughout the day. Each tour will last approximately 40 minutes and will start at the crypt entrance on the south side of the church (nearest the Mitre pub). Please arrive five minutes before the published start time of your tour.
Places are limited so please book early!
Please note that the crypt is an historic space and unfortunately is not accessible to people with limited mobility - there are steep steps leading down into it. It has low ceilings and is also a working space – with material and equipment stored throughout it.
The church will be open throughout the period of the tours and there is an exhibition about Wolfe and the people associated with him buried in the crypt or the churchyard.
