We welcome groups to visit and explore the Abbey at their own leisure and/or with their own guide. Groups of 10 or more are required to book in advance. To avoid disappointment, we recommend that you make your booking at least four weeks in advance. Whilst we make every effort to welcome everyone to the Abbey, we cannot always accommodate unbooked groups.
We can provide information in 27 languages. Our volunteer stewards are generally available to answer questions. For information about the history of the Abbey click here.
