You are welcome to picnic within the grounds, however we would ask you not to picnic within the confines of the ruins itself. There is a shelter in the grounds that may be used if the weather is inclement, however your class may also eat lunch in the Outdoor Classroom if available. Please ensure all litter is either binned or taken home.
The abbey has a wide range of books and gifts. Due to restricted space please help us by allowing children to visit in accompanied groups of 10 only.
Our café is open every day that we are open and to find out what's on the menu please click here.
Health & Safety
We try to provide a safe place for visitors, within the constraints of an historic property; but please take care. Varying ground levels can be dangerous, especially in wet weather. Take care around the two ponds and rough stonework. Across the site, beware of uneven ground and badger holes. Children must be supervised at all times. A First Aid kit is kept at the ticket office.
A 'Risk Assessment' can be obtained from the abbey on request. Please note that this is intended to supplement the schools own risk assessment procedures, not to replace them.
