Event description

Description

Westminster is an ancient boarding and day school with a unique sense of place. It is, in fact, the only long-established school to remain on its original site in the centre of London.

Its origins can be traced to a charity school established by the Benedictine monks of Westminster Abbey and its continuous existence is certain from the early fourteenth century. After the dissolution of the monasteries in 1540, Henry VIII personally ensured the School’s survival by statute and Elizabeth I, confirmed royal patronage in 1560 and is celebrated as the School’s Foundress.

Situated in Little Dean’s Yard the school inhabits a varied collection of buildings, many of which were formerly part of the monastery. The tour will take in Ashburnham House, ‘School’ and Dr Busby’s Library.

Meet outside the School Offices at 18 Dean's Yard or inside if raining.
