Explore 300 years of danger, bravery and history at England's oldest living convent
Visit our Exhibition to discover why the convent opened in secret, who protected it from mobs and what happened the night the Luftwaffe came. Visit our 18th Century chapel and recently restored Great Parlour. Enjoy home cooked food in our café or afternoon tea in our tranquil garden. Accommodation is available in our highly-rated Guest House. Just 5 minutes from the train station and next to the city walls. Visit the hidden Chapel built in 1769, designed with eight separate exits to allow the congregation to escape in the event of a raid by authorities. Its magnificent neoclassical dome is still concealed beneath our pitched slate roof.
