About Lesnes Abbey Woods

The abbey lies in ruins, but the Monk's Garden has been restored with medicinal plants and a viewing platform. The arboretum was planted with nearly 100 varieties of trees and the 200+ acre ancient woodland bursts with daffodils and bluebells. Look out for the sculptures, fossil pit, play area and family events. Adults can navigate with a walking map, Lesnes Abbey app, or the Lore of the Wild woodland storytelling app.
