    The recently refurbished museum brings to life 300 years of piety, culture and tradition. Marvel at the sculptures, stonework and other site-finds on display - including an exceptionally rare fragment of a 14th-century monk's spectacles - giving you a unique insight into the abbey's history as both a monastic site and post-Dissolution home.

  • Audio Tours

    V

    Pick up a free audio guide and imagine how the monks and lay brothers once lived, ate and slept. Be guided past our vivid new interpretation panels and see the clever Cistercian drain which still works after 750 years.

    English Heritage welcomes all photographers to our sites and we hope you will share your pictures with us on Flickr and Facebook. We do have some restrictions at certain locations, so if photography is your main reason for visiting, please call the site ahead of your visit to check if any parts of the site are restricted. We are keen to promote the use of our sites to location managers. If you are interested please go to Filming Locations for more information and contacts.

    English Heritage does not permit drone flying from or over sites in our care, except by contractors or partners undertaking flights for a specific purpose, who satisfy stringent CAA criteria, have the correct insurances and permissions, and are operating under controlled conditions.
