Prayer and Reflection

Attend the Eucharist

Book your seat in the Abbey for the following Sunday service.

Tickets will be available here from Saturday until Thursday morning on the week of the sevice, to allow enough time to set up the Abbey safely.

Virtual Tour

Take a self-guided, online tour of Wymondham Abbey based on the materials used in the guided walks.

The rich history of the Abbey means that your worship here is rooted in that of many faithful generations before you.

The Abbey was built as a Benedictine monastery (founded in 1107). In the 16th century Henry VIII ordered that Wymondham and many other monasteries be demolished and the stone repurposed, however part of the building survived, and still stands today. The ruins of the monastery are also with us, and make for a lovely place to walk, pray, or have a picnic.

Significant historical features within the Church include a 14th century font, an 18th century organ, a gilded reredos (Ninian Comper), and a recently uncovered medieval architectural design.

In 2015 the Abbey was extended with a new refectory and Chapel.
