This is one of England's earliest, most important and most fascinating abbeys, providing sanctuary, tranquillity, history and heritage in one special place. They are connected with legend to a degree that is unparalleled by any other abbey in England. Since Medieval times, the abbey has held legendary status as the earliest Christian foundation in Britain linked to Joseph of Arimathea and the burial place of King Arthur. Today it is a tranquil setting where you can discover the stories, explore the accredited museum and enjoy a packed events calendar.
Wander through the grounds - there's something for everyone from 36 acres of parkland to the chance to take a trip on the wild side along the Badger Boardwalk.
Visit the legendary burial place of King Arthur or marvel at the Holy Thorn.
Imagine the past with our costumed guides who, from March to October, will explain the medieval lifestyle.
