Visitors have been coming to Ampleforth Abbey ever since the Monastery was established here over 200 years ago.
Our guests come from a variety of different backgrounds to seek out the peace and tranquillity of this place. It is somewhere to take time out from the busyness of life and to find a new focus.
Ampleforth Abbey is a Roman Catholic Benedictine Abbey, but you don’t have to be Catholic, or even religious at all, to come and visit us.
