An exclusive event for English Heritage members.

Starting at 10.30am enjoy a cup of tea with Museum Manager Ann Wise while she gives an informal chat about the history of Denny Abbey.

She will then take you on a tour of the Abbey and Refectory pointing out significant architectural details that help date the Abbey’s fascinating past since the 12th century first as a Priory, then an Abbey and finally as a farm house.

Following the tour you will then get a chance to have a sneak behind the scenes and have a rare opportunity to look at some of the artefacts, including coloured glass fragments, found on the site when English Heritage deconstructed the internal walls before opening the Abbey to visitors over 20 years ago.

Places are limited. Please book through English Heritage Customer Services 0370 333 1183.

£12 per person – includes Guide Book.

Please wear practical shoes and be prepared to stand in the Abbey! Access to the Abbey’s first floor is by a steep wooden staircase.

If there is significant demand  we are happy to repeat this  study session in the afternoon.

Afterwards you are welcome to stay and explore the site, including the Farmland Museum, at leisure. Tea Room will be open for light refreshments.
