Ampleforth Visitors

11 December 2017

Welcome to Ampleforth

Whether you are looking for a tour of the Abbey, beautiful walks or simply time to reflect, you are assured a warm welcome. 

On Friday 27th October, the Monastic Community of Ampleforth Abbey will begin moving out of the monastery to Bolton House, where they will reside for the next 18 months whilst their home is fully refurbished for the first time in almost 100 years.  The move will take place over one full week and will see increased traffic on site; we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused - please click here to learn more.  Thank you for your understanding and please keep the community in your prayers.  

Visitors are invited to spend the day at Ampleforth and enjoy the facilities that we offer including the Abbey Tea Room with a fantastic selection of food and beverages, the Abbey Shop and our Visitor Centre, providing a comprehensive insight into the history of Ampleforth.

Admission to the Abbey and Grounds is free but we do welcome donations to support the work of the Abbey and the Benedictine Community.

Please note that, as of 28th August 2017, services times will be changed - please see our Service Times page for more details.
