In the middle ages, Westminster Abbey was likely a stop frequented by English knights, and so it's fitting that the abbey's 'Medieval Mayhem' event imparts some knightly knowledge on its attendees. The event, which finds a fun balance between activities and education, brings kids on an adventure as they learn the ropes of knighthood on the historic Gothic cathedral's grounds.

Medieval Mayhem is a two-day event for kids. The first day focuses on medieval history, teaching kids to make gingerbread according to an authentic early recipe, showing them how to design illuminated manuscripts, and waltzing through a medieval dance. On the second day, kids follow squire Will as he teaches them about what it takes to become a medieval knight.
