The excavated foundations of this once important Abbey, founded over 1000 years ago by King Alfred, lie in a peaceful walled garden, with medieval orchard and extensive herb garden. The museum brings to life the story of the Abbey and its inhabitants with dramatic displays of medieval stonework and an interactive virtual tour. There is a free audio tour, printed guides and children’s activities.
