Wymondham Abbey


Wymondham Abbey is one of the grandest religious buildings in East Anglia.  It’s a magnificent Norman church established in 1107 as part of a monastic foundation. It was later enlarged and embellished with a particularly fine angel roof. The famous gilded altar screen by Ninian Comper is among its many splendours. The unusual twin towers are a prominent local landmark.

We’re an active and lively parish church, with services every day and plenty of events and activities. We’re open almost every day of the year. We have stewards on duty and a well-stocked shop on site. Our new Lottery-funded Abbey Experience displays and additional facilities ensure that your visit will be enjoyable and memorable.  We’re truly a place for welcome, worship and wonder.
