The Life and Times of Sir Walter Raleigh

Westminster Abbey will commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of Sir Walter Raleigh with a day of events in St Margaret’s Church on Monday 29th October.

Raleigh’s body is buried near the high altar in St Margaret’s, and a stained glass window - installed above the west door in 1882 - shows Raleigh sailing for the Americas, his imprisonment and burial. There is also a memorial tablet on the south east wall of the church.

Join us for this symposium remembering the great Elizabethan explorer, courtier, writer and poet.
