Buckland Abbey is set within a beautiful estate full of meadows, woodlands, and orchards, and has over 700 years of history to discover, which you can do with the help of children's quiz and trail, plus a number of other family activities for inside and outdoors.

The Abbey is part house and part museum, with a magnificent Great Barn that has barely changed since it was built, and filled with treasures, such as the legendary Drake's Drum! Make sure you check out the ‘Nave Gallery', which contains their Rambrandt self-portrait that you can get up close to, and there is the opportunity to be a part the Abbey's own work of art by sending them your selfies!

Once you have explored the amazing buildings, discovering their history as you go, there are magnificent grounds to explore, with a secret ‘wild' garden and loads of lovely plants. There is a kitchen garden, a Cider House garden, an Elizabethan garden, plus a number of way marked trails for your intrepid little explorers to follow that offer amazing views across the Tavy Valley. Don't forget to check out the Willow Patch play area!

There are lots of exciting events for families throughout the year, so check online before you visit to see what's on and see what extra action you can get in on!
