Accessibility

Customers in wheelchairs are very welcome at the abbey, and our staff will always provide assistance whenever possible. Please remember that some areas of the abbey grounds will be uneven underfoot. Please get in touch in advance of your visit if you have any questions or specific requirements.

A limited number of accessible car parking spaces are available on a first come, first served basis. These are located closest to the entrance/exit towards the abbey. Access to the abbey from our main car park over gravel and is suitable for wheelchair users. 

There is wheelchair access to our tearoom, shop, visitor centre, Abbey church and guest house. As it is a historic building there are a number of steps and narrow corridors. Where possible ramp access should be available at many of these points.

We have two accessible toilets within Quarr Abbey. They are located at the Tea Room (which is in the grounds of the Abbey) and in the courtyard area next to the Visitor Centre. Please contact us in advance if you have further inquiries or would like to discuss your visit in advance.

Throughout your visit if there is anyway we can accommodate you to make your time with us more enjoyable, please get in touch with us.

Welcome to the Abbey of Our Lady of Quarr, a monastery on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. It is home to a small group of Benedictine monks who strive to dedicate their lives to the glory of God, and whose day is characterised by prayer, work and community life.

Quarr Abbey is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Visitors are welcome to attend worship in the Abbey Church. You can visit our gardens, take refreshment in our Tea Shop and find out about the monastery in our Visitor Centre. The Farm Shop offers home grown produce and the Monastery Shop religious articles, books and souvenirs. There is a new exhibition of the work of local artists every week in the gallery.
