About Newstead

This monastic abbey is said to have been built in the late 12th century.  The surviving West Front wall of the medieval church is a truly impressive sight, as are the perfectly manicured formal gardens.  As well as exploring the stunning Abbey and its grounds, Newstead also hosts a variety of activities and events for all the family.

Follow the golden paths

Breedon gravel golden paths wind their way through the established woodlands and along the trails and sit beautifully within their surroundings.  Wheelchair and buggy friendly this material is a must have for users of varying mobility to be able to access all areas of the grounds year-round.
