Explore 300 years of danger, bravery and history at England's oldest living convent
Visit our interactive Exhibition to discover why the oldest convent in England opened in secret, who protected it from a mob and what happened the night the Luftwaffe came. Visit our hidden 18th Century chapel, restored Great Parlour and secluded walled garden. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea in our café. 5 minutes from the station and beside the city walls. 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.
