Minster Abbey Houses
Minster in Thanet
As part of our work of hospitality we welcome the public to view the ancient monastic buildings and beautiful gardens. In these guided tours visitors are given an explanation of the historic background to this ancient site.
Those who come to the abbey for historic tours of the ancient buildings find it interesting to see that it is the home to an actual living community.
Thousands of visitors come to Minster Abbey each year, including groups of historians, archaeologists, students and school children from Kent, all over Britain and overseas.
