Welcome to Ampleforth Abbey

Founded in 1802, Ampleforth Abbey is home to a community of more than 55 monks who seek God according to the Gospel and the Rule of St Benedict. We welcome all visitors, from those seeking to find peace in our Valley, to those interested in exploring a Vocation. We invite you to browse our site to familiarise yourself with the works of Ampleforth and of course, to 'Come and See' (John 1 : 39).  We look forward to seeing you soon.
