You can arrive at any time from the time shown on your booking confirmation. You're then welcome to stay for as long as you like.

Some of our sites can get very busy, especially on Bank Holidays. Our busiest times are between 11am and 2pm, so if you prefer to visit at a quieter time you may wish to visit outside of these hours.

Last admission is 30 minutes before the site closes.

You don't need to book your visit in advance, but you will always get the best price and guaranteed entry by booking online ahead of your visit. The prices shown here include a discount. The admission price will be higher if you choose to pay on the day you visit.



Muchelney Abbey, which lies two miles south of Langport, was once a landmark in the Somerset Levels and still has much to offer its visitors. With plenty to explore, this is an ideal day out whatever the weather and on sunny days, children have plenty of room to play in the grounds.

Visitors can still see the clearly laid out foundations of the abbey, parts of the richly decorated cloister walk and thatched monks' lavatory - the only one of its kind in Britain. The 16th-century abbots' house remains intact with its magnificent rooms, and site finds are on display illustrating monastic life.
