Seasonal Activity

Each season, we aim to provide an interactive and fun activity for children whilst exploring the Abbey. This may be in line with the seasons more as we know them - summer and winter or it may be a liturgical season such as Lent or Christmas.

This summer, we will be running our yearly trail through the Abbey. This year's theme is Amazing Animals! 

'Amazing Animals' will take children on a journey through the Abbey to find letters which will spell out the name of a Northumbrian Saint! 

Please collect you free trail map from the Welcome Desk as you come into the Abbey.


On Thursdays throughout the summer, we will also have a crafty workshop on in the Cloister Porch from 10am - 3pm.
