Changes to Exhibition Opening Times

Since first being advertised, the opening hours have changed slightly. The exhibition will now open on Wednesday, 19 June and close on Friday, 2 August.  The Abbey will be open from Wednesday to Sunday each week up to week commencing 29 July when it will be open every day.  The house will open at 11.00am for all visitors on a free flow basis and close at 5pm.  Tours will still be available.  The entrance fee will be £8 with children up to 18 free.  Group visits (12+) need to be booked in advance and can be made for any day, including Monday and Tuesday.


The Abbey is sometimes used for other functions which can mean that access to parts of the house may be restricted.  Details of these will be posted on their website and we will also try to post on the Lace Guild Facebook page.


We look forward to welcoming you to Delapre Abbey and Northampton.
