We love to welcome families at the Abbey and have tailored some resources for your visit.

Benedict Trail

The Benedict Trail is a family friendly trail around the Abbey that will help you discover the Abbey’s hidden treasures. The trail is free of charge and available in the leaflet stand at the entrance of the Abbey. If you are having trouble finding the trail a welcomer will gladly assist you.

Sculpture Trails and Resources

During 2020 the Abbey worked with Chrysalis Arts and local artist Alun Kirby to create a project around sculptures in the Abbey. We provided origami packs for local children and two types of sculpture trail (inside and outside). Alun has also made a video detailing the trail if you are unable to visit us.

All the resources are available to download here. Alternatively, you can contact us for a paper copy.

Children’s Corner

Please note due to COVID-19 our children’s corner is currently out of use.

We have a children’s corner with books, colouring and activities. All children are welcome to use this area.

Activity Days

The Abbey regularly holds activities for families. This includes our annual medieval day. Please visit our What’s On page to keep up to date with our activities and events.
