Tours of the Abbey

Due to the pandemic we have been unable to welcome people for tours. We are hopeful to begin tours again in 2022. Watch this space!

As part of our work of hospitality we welcome the public to view the ancient monastic buildings and beautiful gardens. In these guided tours visitors are given an explanation of the historic background to this ancient site.

Those who come to the abbey for historic tours of the ancient buildings find it interesting to see that it is an actual living community.
Thousands of visitors come to Minster Abbey each year, including groups of historians, archaeologists, students and school children from Kent, all over Britain and overseas.

Following the tour, you are welcome to visit the shop which sells post cards, handmade cards, crafts made by the sisters and other gift items. We do not charge for the tour, but there is a donation box in the shop for your offering.
