Visit: Westminster Abbery Funerary Sculpture
| Westminster Abbery
Blue Badge Guide Fiona Grant will conduct two tours of the marvellous tomb sculpture at Westminster Abbey, which houses the finest collection of such work in the country and provides an opportunity to study the development of English funerary monuments from the 12th to the 20th century. As well as a general survey of the sculpture, we are hoping to have privileged access to one or two restricted areas not normally accessible to visitors (for example, the Cosmati pavement in front of the altar). Restoration and conservation works are currently under way, with more work planned in part of the Abbey where damage to the fragile structure has occurred, so the exact details of this tour will be confirmed at a later date, just before our visits.
