Winter walks

Sheep in the snow at Buckland

This year, Buckland Abbey will be open until 2 January (excluding 24-26 December), and also on weekends until 16 February 2019. Join us for woodland walks and warming drinks.

What's open?

There are miles of footpaths to explore around the estate or why not enjoy the peace and quiet of the garden on a frosty day. Warm up with a hot chocolate or a bowl of soup in the restaurant, and browse for some gifts in the shop.

The estate, garden, shop and restaurant will be open on weekends until 16 February.

The Abbey will be closed between 2 January and 16 February.

Preparing for spring

From Christmas until 16 February, the team will be preparing for the new season with a good old spring clean. 

Want to know more about how we care for the collections we look after? Perhaps get a bit more hands on with helping out? We're always looking for volunteers for a variety of roles, so if a new year challenge is what you're looking for, why not give us a call and find out more?
