Forde Abbey is a popular destination for families, garden lovers and historians alike. Set within thirty acres of award-winning gardens, you’ll find something of interest all year round. To help you make the most of your visit, we’ve included a choice selection of information and links below. However, if you have any specific questions, whether it’s looking after a large group or catering for specialist diets in our cafe, do please see the Contact Us page for details about how to get in touch, we’ll be only too happy to help.
Please note, the fountain is on three times daily; 12 noon, 1.30pm and 3pm.
New for 2017, we have a wide range of events in the diary as well as attractions in the garden to make your visit a great day out for all the family. Walk in the footsteps of the monks and step back in time with a range of habits to try on in the house for all ages.
