Glastonbury Abbey

We are delighted to be able to let you know that Glastonbury Abbey has reopened to the public.

Opening arrangements will be different than usual for a little while.

Initially they will be open Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm, last entry at 3.15pm.

A one way system has been introduced for entry, exit and access to the Lady Chapel will be in place.

At this time the shop, café, museum, Abbot’s Kitchen and St Patrick’s Chapel will remain closed.

We will be installing portable toilets on the site but please do note that before these are available only the wheelchair accessible toilet will be open as it is not possible to maintain social distancing in the route to the current toilet block.

Glastonbury Abbey are pleased to offer residents of Mendip a discounted local visitor ticket, giving them access to this significant historical monument and spiritual site in 36 acres of grounds and ruins in the centre of Glastonbury.

The ticket is available until the end of July 2020 and entitles the bearer to five visits for £15 (adults) or £7.50 (children) until the 31st of December 2020.

While the annual membership still offers the greatest value for visitors, this ticket is being offered specifically for those local people who would like to visit the abbey during this time of limited movement and aren’t sure whether a full membership is for them.

These are temporary opening hours while we build up to being able to welcome greater numbers of visitors and those from further afield when the guidance permits. For people who haven’t experienced the abbey before it is a beautiful space in which to walk, walk your dog, picnic with your family or find a quiet spot for reflection.

When visiting the abbey signs and staff guidance indicate our social distancing measures and one way system for your safety.
