An hour to spare

Easy to park, nice scenery, and quaint little coffee shop. Only misgiving was noise from A45 quite loud through trees.

Bearing in mind this place is run by volunteers, the service is excellent, food lovely, setting cannot be better on a summers day in the garden. It's just great!

I love the Abbey, kinda shame their "doing it up" as it has great atmosphere, and HAUNTED, took our Spaniel in to test a theory that digs got spooked in a particular corridor but it didn't... More

Delapre Abbey and Delapre Park are beautiful places to spend a few hours walking, with friends and with dogs. Close to town and plenty of parking nearby, it's a good place to bring friends when they come to visit for a bit of fresh air and local sightseeing.

I love it there, so much to see in the gardens and learn about the history. There is a nice coffee shop where they serve nice lunches.

Pleasant woodland park and walled garden with very good small friendly cafe with fantastic cakes. ‘Abbey’ building due for renovation to allow public access, not exactly stunning from the outside but has potential.
