“Beautiful historic Abbey”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Sherborne Abbey is the heart of the town and an integral part of the lives of the townspeople including the school boys and girls. Beautiful classic stone architecture. Full of history. Certainly worth visiting.

“Wonderful Service”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Tours are neat - services are better. Enjoy the Abbey by taking in a Sunday service! I had a chance to enjoy Passion Sunday evening service and it really adds to see/hear a choir in the acoustics of the church.

“Stunning”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

A must see whilst in this pretty town.

Fabulous interior - such beautiful ceilings and stained glass.

There is no entrance fee - though donations are obviously very welcomed.

“Sherborne Abbey visit”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is worth visiting during a visit to Sherborne. It's a lovely building and in constant use, used for many weddings etc. as well as usual church services.
The guides are very helpful and keen to help but you don't need a guide if you don't want to.
In the centre of town and very easy to find.

Beautiful abbey with a lovely, warm atmosphere, unlike some of the great cathedrals. Unmissable. They have an excellent new guidebook, too.
