Overview
More
Wymondham Abbey is located in the market town of Wymondham and is the town's parish church. As well as being an active church with services every day, the Abbey is also a hub for the community for events such as family activities and concerts. In November 2015 the Abbey Experience opens with improved facilities including accessible toilets, enhanced visitor experience including the display of original artefacts and manuscripts and hands on activities for adults and children to engage in the heritage of this special place. There is lots to see at the Abbey and our Stewards are always on hand to answer questions. The Abbey also has a shop which sells souvenirs, locally made gifts and produce, seasonal products and spiritual books. There are regular events at the Abbey so do visit the Abbey website for further details and to check opening hours.

If you are ever in Wymondham take time out to visit the abbey. You will not be disappointed to find a wonderful abbey in a small market town.

Wymondham Norman Abbey is incredible inside and is a real heritage jewel. Dating back over 900 years it's history is told in the Abbey Experience.
