The Friars is open every day from dawn to dusk, all are welcome. We are home to a community of Carmelite fathers and have been since 1242, Whitefriars to give them their taditional name, but it is much more: it's a center for pilgrimages, a center for conferences, retreats, and our guest house, which offers accommodation. You are free to look around. The Chapels are there for your personal prayer and you are always welcome to attend the services.
We have many facilities at your disposal, West Barn houses the gift shop and refreshments.
Please make yourself at home, the picnic areas are there for you to use and if you want more information please ask.

We all wish you an enjoyable visit, and look forward to seeing you very soon.
