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.
