A warm welcome to Ampleforth Abbey

Since 1802, this working monastery has been home to a community of Benedictine monks who seek God according to the Gospel and the Rule of St Benedict.
Sitting at the heart of 1,600 acres of Yorkshire countryside, which you are welcome to explore on walks and cycles, lies the Abbey Church which hosts services daily online and in-person.
Modern Retreat Facilities offer visitors the opportunity to experience the peace of life in the Ampleforth valley.
Our Visitor Experience, which includes the Abbey Shop and Tea Room, is currently under renovation and will reopen in the spring of 2024.
