If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Abingdon Abbey

A range of medieval buildings (13th-15thC) which have remained in use since Abingdon Abbey (Benedictine) surrendered to Henry VIII in 1538. The Long Gallery, Checker with Undercroft and Checker Hall, now used as a miniature theatre have been carefully restored and are in regular use. Some other remnants of the Abbey can be seen nearby but the major buildings were demolished.
