Visit Abbey Buildings

The last remaining part of the medieval abbey

When Henry VIII’s men dismantled the Abbey which had made the town famous, they left behind some medieval buildings near the river which were eventually saved by the Friends of Abingdon. Today the Abbey Buildings are a fascinating glimpse into the business life of the monastery, and also include a small theatre created at the time of the coronation of our present Queen.

There are three separate parts to the Abbey Buildings; for more detailed historical information click on these links to go to the historical section of this website.
