Summary Description

Dore Abbey was one of the great Medieval monasteries of Herefordshire, and the church is one of the finest Cistercian survivals in England. Part of the monastic church continues in use as a parish church and is more than 800 years old in parts, and it is one of the major examples of Norman and Medieval monastic and church architecture in the country, uniquely adapted for Post-Reformation worship by the Scudamores, combining two key elements of the Christian church in the United Kingdom – a Pre-Reformation Cistercian Abbey and Post-Reformation Laudian Anglican Church. The ruins of the Abbey conventual buildings, and the underground archaeological remains related to these, add to this significance.

The abbey is open for visitors from 9am-5pm, and the grounds are always open. Services are held throughout the week. The abbey has car parking, toilet facilities which are wheelchair accessible, a ramped entrance, a hearing induction loop and assistance dogs are welcome.
