Rushen Abbey School Visits

Walk your class through the remains of substantial medieval buildings and herb gardens to see how archaeological research has revealed traces of monastic life.

Learn about Abbey life through the ages, from the 1180’s to strawberry tea dancing and days of disco!

Children can follow the family friendly ‘Monky Business’ activities including throwing a pot on the potter’s wheel, making sounds of the Abbey and the fruit picking challenge in the Jam Factory.

The interpretation centre has been designed to incorporate many learning preferences with herb gardens engaging more sensory learners.
