The Monastery aims to be Open Every Day between 11am- 4pm (except Saturdays) with free entry & free parking. Visitors are most welcome to call in between 11 and 4pm and visit the Heritage Corner but we cannot guarantee that the Great Nave will always be available.

Special Heritage & Visitor Open Days are held all year round on every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday when the Great Nave, Café & Shop are open between 11 and 4pm. Tours and talks can also be pre-booked on these open days. Please note, the Nave is closed on Monday 20th May and on Sunday 12th May due to ticketed events taking place (though there should be accompanied access to the Nave from around 1-2pm on Sunday 12th May during the event lunch break).

A regular programme of community, health, well-being and family activities is also available for everyone to enjoy. Our affordable Community Rooms can be pre-booked for use 7 days of the week between 9am and 5.30pm.
