Be transported back in time to the medieval abbey as you encounter the fantastic stories of the past under candlelight.

This Spring Abbey by Night returns.

As darkness descends, huddle around and meet the characters - both monks and pilgrims - to whom this great abbey was once home.  See, hear, feel and even smell the inspiring tales these men and women have to tell.

Upon entrance to the building, expect clouds of incense, the sounds of monk’s music, and the hustle and bustle of a lively medieval abbey at work as time rewinds several centuries. 

Watch history come to life in this truly unique experience.
