Discover the House at Anglesey Abbey

Anglesey Abbey in the spring sunshine

Discover the many layers that Anglesey Abbey has to offer and explore its rich history from monastic priory to twentieth century home. We're gradually re-opening each space. Your visit may be a little different to what you remember, so please take some time to read through this article for further information on what's currently open.

Open Thursday - Tuesday | 11am - 3pm*

*The last entry to the house will be at 2pm. 

Step through a different door and immerse yourself in a small but perfectly formed experience. We've re-opened a third of the house already, and plan to open more as time goes on. The new route is on the ground floor with improved accessibility. We’re pleased to be able to extend our current reduced admission price, whilst we're at the start of our journey towards fully re-opening. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Staying safe

  • The safety of our visitors, volunteers and staff remains our top priority.
  • Face coverings are recommended in enclosed, crowded areas. 
  • We'll continue to provide hand sanitiser and stick to our high standards of cleanliness.
  • If you're showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you've been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 10 days, please don't visit.
  • To protect the collection from accidental damage, large bags and baby carriers cannot be worn inside the house and must be carried.
  • Please leave pushchairs outside the house. Speak to a member of the team if you're unsure where to leave them.
  • Accessible routes are available, please take a look at our Access Statement to find out more, or speak to a member of the team on arrival.

House closure | 9 August - 6 September 

We're temporarily closing the house to enable our team to carry out essential conservation work in key showrooms and reconfigure spaces. By carrying out this work now, it also means that we’ll be able to open for longer over the Christmas period, giving visitors something to look forward to this winter. Thank you for your support.
