Announcement: Covid-19 Pandemic. Following the recent Government advice and given the large number of visitors to Buckfast Abbey, with much regret, we have decided that the responsible thing to do is to close the shops, exhibitions, toilets and catering facilities on the site for the foreseeable future.

The Abbey church will also now remain closed until further notice, the grounds, car park and gardens remain accessible, but visitors enter these at their own risk and are reminded to keep “social distancing” from others. First Aid assistance is not available until further notice.
