Malmesbury Abbey

The Abbey community is alive and active and we are doing our best to gradually reopen our building. The details are as follows.

From Friday 14 August 2020, the Abbey will be open to visitors and for private prayer from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm Monday – Saturday.

We also plan to resume face-to-face services in September, but these will be re-introduced gradually. Please see the news sheet for the most recent updates (click here).

The Abbey Bookshop, for now, will be staffed 9:30 am – 3:30 pm Wednesdays – Saturdays, though purchases can still be made on Mondays and Tuesdays using the honesty box or by card at the donation station.

As usual the cafe is open 9.30 am to 3.30 pm Monday – Saturday with access from the cloister garden ONLY. For more information about the Abbey Cafe click here.

If you’re planning to visit, please wear a mask if you can, use the sanitising stations, follow the one way system and maintain social distancing. Thanks so much for helping us keep people safe by following these guidelines.
