Tudor Cooking

Come and discover our Tudor cooks in the kitchen at Buckland Abbey - it's a treat for the senses and suitable for all ages.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

As you reach the ground floor of Buckland Abbey, you may smell an open fire and something cooking!

Our Tudor cooking team, in full costume, will be whipping up a spread fit for a Tudor household. Their menu will be tailored to the time of year and may reflect events in the Tudor social or religious calendar.

This regular event is a living history display that brings the Abbey to life. The food will not be available for visitors to eat but we will provide recipe cards for you to take away and try at home.

Visitors may be able to assist with some simple tasks such as grinding spices.

The event is free, normal admission to the Abbey applies.
