Description

Welcome to Torre Abbey 

Established in 1196, Torre Abbey is a museum of history and art housed in an Ancient Scheduled Monument with beautiful and award winning gardens.

The Abbey is real hive of activity where world class exhibitions are shown side by side with creative work from local emerging talent.

Specially curated exhibitions complement the museum’s permanent collection which includes regionally important art, with some nationally important works.

Our 800 years of history galley explores local history, heritage and stories through interactive displays, talking portraits and videos.

Torre Abbey Gardens

Our award winning garden is famed for exuberant plantings of herbaceous perennials, roses and dahlias. Rare shrubs and trees flourish in the English Riviera climate, and our Palm and Cactus Houses contain tropical and sub-tropical plants including endangered palms from Kew Gardens.

Children can explore the gardens with special trails and learning activities. There are regular talks and tours by our wonderful head gardener and other horticultural experts. A popular favourite is the Agatha Christie inspired ‘Potent Plants tour’!
