The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey is an ideal place to bring your group – there is a lot to see that will appeal to all ages and interests.

We have great facilities that groups look for when booking a visit:

  • We have parking for cars, mini buses and coaches.
  • Picnic tables
  • Toilets
  • Gift shop & book shop

Day-time Visits:

Groups may choose to explore the site by themselves or choose to have –

  • have a guided tour of the Abbey and/or Museum
  • have an illustrated talk about the site
  • have a handling session of some of our artefacts

Our guided tours last 1 hour (we can customise and provide a shorter one if you prefer) allow a further 30 minutes if you wish to include the whole site.

Refreshments must be pre-booked – choose from a variety of options including a hot drink and biscuits or  afternoon tea. A buffet lunch is available on limited days – please ask about availability when booking. You are welcome to bring a picnic .

Evening Visits:

Evening visits include a guided tour and the choice of refreshments is limited to hot drinks with or without a selection of cakes. You are welcome to bring a picnic – the site is a lovely place for groups to have a summer evening’s picnic.

We’ll also come to you!

We are very happy to also offer talks and object handling sessions to groups in their local communities. Unfortunately we are currently limited to how far we can travel in the evening – at the moment we limit ourselves to North Hertfordshire, South Cambridgeshire and central Cambridge.

Topics include the ” The Abbey”, “History of the Museum and Abbey”, “Rural Life” and “Curiosities of the Collection”.

All talks are charged at a flat rate of £45 plus £5 mileage charge and can be tailored to your group.

Please email the Museum Manager for further details.
