The first part of this day out is in Westminster Abbey, which is always crowded, but the second part of the day is outdoors, with lots to see and explore. Still a great day out.

If Statues Could Talk...

Join Hodge, Dr Samuel Johnson's favourite cat, as Jon Bickley's sculpture comes to life and introduces you to a London statue for each letter of the alphabet.


There is even free entrance to Westminster Abbey for Step Outside groups with primary aged children!* You will see some of the statues there - and much more besides!


Let Hodge guide you from Westminster Abbey to St Paul's on buses and on foot, discovering a wealth of wonderful statues. And then finish the day on a rooftop, with a panoramic view across London.

"Just to say we had a fantastic day out with this book at half term.  Your book enabled me to share with my 10 year old daughter some of the magic of our capital city and I now understand why people travel from far and wide to see the sights."
