Founded by King Alfred the Great in 888, Shaftesbury Abbey was England's foremost Benedictine nunnery until it was destroyed on the orders of Henry VIII in 1539. The excavated foundations of the Abbey lie in a peaceful walled garden with traditional roses, orchard and extensive medieval herb garden. The museum brings to life the story of the Abbey and its inhabitants with dramatic displays of medievel stonework, audio guide, written guides and children's activities.
