Discovery Visits at Whitby Abbey
Let our site experts bring the history of Whitby Abbey to life with an interactive Discovery Visit for up to 30 students. Our new session available from Spring 2019 has been created to provide a hands-on learning experience.
The Whitby Abbey Story: Monks, Monasteries and Medieval Life
Discover why Whitby Abbey was founded here and how it has changed through time. On an interactive expert-led tour, your class will investigate evidence of the Anglo-Saxon monastery, learn about what archaeological techniques can tell us about the past, and explore what life was like in the later Benedictine monastery, imagining what it was like to be a monk.
- Availability: 1 November to 16 February: Wednesday to Friday during term time, 17 February to 31 October: Monday to Friday during term time
- Session lasts for 1 1/4 hours
