Denny Abbey

Denny Abbey is another great place to take the children. It is a former abbey that was later converted into farmland. It has been home to 3 different monastic orders: Benedictine monks (founded in 1159), Knights of Templar and Franciscan Nuns (after 1308).

I love it because you can see the difference in the styles of masonry. Also there is a cute farmhouse so you get an idea of what life was like in the 1940s and what life was like in this area and how the world has changed it.  They also have children friendly activities and events.

It is located on the A10 between Ely and Cambridge. It is also an English Heritage property so if you are a member you will have free admission.

All the Best!
