Groups & pilgrimage

The Abbey Grounds will reopen to visitors on Saturday 4th July.

We are normally open throughout the year and in usual circumstances pilgrim groups are welcome at any time of year.

Under COVID19 precautions, individual pilgrims, and any organised groups which fall within current government guidelines for gatherings and travel, are still very welcome. Opening outside our usual hours can normally be arranged.

To book a group, make a special arrangement, or visit outside our usual hours, please contact us at the Estate Office, details below.
