Enjoy a family visit to Glastonbury Abbey this summer.
From the 17th of May 2021, Glastonbury Abbey is offering free admission to children under 16 years of age. Each adult that purchases a day ticket may bring along two children for the visit completely free of charge to explore the abbey's spectacular ruins and 36 acres of stunning grounds. Situated in the heart of Glastonbury town, Glastonbury Abbey is a site of national historic and spiritual significance, with what is accepted as one of the finest medieval kitchens in Europe and a museum which tells the abbey’s stories, spanning its long history.
As social restrictions ease the abbey will open up the sections of the site that have had to be closed throughout the national lockdown. We are looking forward to receiving visitors again in the museum, St. Patrick's Chapel, the Lady Chapel and the 14th Century Abbot's Kitchen. The abbey's costumed characters provide a colourful social history of the abbey and its people and from May half-term there will be family-friendly self-guided activities available from the ticket office, which come packaged in a souvenir Glastonbury Abbey cotton tote bag.
From May 17th the abbey will be open seven days per week from 10am to 6pm with last entry at 5.15pm. Admission can be bought online in advance or at the ticket office upon arrival. Details of admission costs and tickets to a range of special events can be viewed by visiting the abbey's website at https://www.glastonburyabbey.com/

All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and are not to be left unattended on the Glastonbury Abbey site. Limit of two free child admissions per adult ticket. Additional children are charged at £6.60 per ticket. Not applicable with any other offer. Not applicable to events held at the abbey.
