Guest Information

Edgware Abbey is a haven of peace enfolding many visitors.

It is our pleasure to welcome you, offering hospitality within the Benedictine tradition, welcoming ‘Guests as Christ Himself’ (RB 54) for those seeking space for rest and renewal. We are located in North London with excellent transport links.

The Abbey grounds, although in a transitional phase, provide a tranquil place to sit and be. Guests are welcome to join the Sisters at Divine Office and the Eucharist. Please contact the Booking Secretary by phone or email if you would like to make a visit.

Quiet Days

If you are looking for a place to study, to rest, or to pray in a peaceful environment we can offer you a room in St Raphael’s for the day with the chapel close by and access to our lovely gardens.

Please bring your own sandwiches/lunch.  Tea, coffee, milk & biscuits  available in St Raphael’s.

Small Group Meetings:

St John’s Chalet (near St Raphael’s) is ideal for group meetings of up to 8 participants, for day time meetings.

Parish Groups:

The Abbey chapel is the ideal venue for larger groups.  Please bring your own sandwiches.  Tea, coffee, milk and biscuits are provided in St Raphael’s Guest Wing.
