Event Navigation

The garden is closed until further notice.

As part of the UK’s efforts to stem the spread of the virus, we are sadly closing our garden during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

This has been a very difficult decision to take, and we have kept our gardens open as long as possible to offer the space and tranquility and beauty at this stressful time. However, we feel that it is in the best interests of all of our visitors, members, staff and volunteers to strongly emphasise our support of social distancing practices, and encourage people not to travel unless absolutely necessary.

Please join us on Facebook and Instagram, where we’ll be sharing postcards from Spring to keep the conversation going, and will continue to bring Forde Abbey to you via our regular monthly newsletter (you can sign up via the box at the bottom of our homepage).

We will keep following the latest government advice and will be updating this statement as and when there is any further news. We will of course reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.

Thank you again for understanding.
