Visiting us

Oratory by night

‘Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ’

Rule of St. Benedict

The Abbey is open daily for those who would like to join us in prayer at our Eucharist or one of our daily Offices. We also welcome those who would like to spend a Quiet Day with us or to stay on retreat in our Guest Wing.

Daily prayer

On arrival at the monastery please press the bell and a Brother or Sister will let you in.

Quiet days

We offer Quiet Days for those who would like to spend the day with us, usually sometime between 10am and Compline. Unfortunately, due to limited space, we are unable to accommodate groups at present.


Benedict assures us that ‘guests are never wanting in a monastery’, and it is our joy to be able to receive guests on retreat and to share the atmosphere of prayer and quiet.
