About
For over 1300 years Pershore Abbey has been a centre for Christian worship and life, from its early beginnings as a Saxon monastery to today, as people of all ages still gather to pray, share their spiritual journey and mark significant life events in this place. Pershore Abbey celebrates its Benedictine heritage particularly through its welcome of visitors and pilgrims. We hope your visit to the Abbey will be both rewarding and memorable. One of the finest example of Norman and Early English architecture in the country, Pershore Abbey is very much a broken building: Henry VIII destroyed the nave at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries; the north transept collapsed in the middle 1600s. But, in spite of its brokenness, the Abbey symbolises a place where, through the love of Christ, a community can become whole.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We always go for a Xmas day morning walk and went to light a candle 🕯 for my dad. A warm welcome from vicar Claire Lording (best vicar in pershore in my opinion).

Visited the Abbey and its lovely grounds. We enjoyed the concert performed by Worcester Philharmonic Orchestra which was held to commemorate the installation of the new organ.

The Abbey. Don’t bother visiting Pershore for cafes or pretty riverside places. We visited on a Monday and the place was dead with many outlets closed up. The river is edged with tall rusting poles and couldn’t find a happening place anywhere.

It is great to see that work is being done on the organ, however this did restrict our access to the inside of the Abbey a little.
This is a fantastic example of a church through the ages.

A lovely welcome by the lady volunteer, good to see the detailed interior. Quite plain apart from the ceiling but still very worth a visit.

What a lovely old church with stunning roof architecture. It was built in 10th century and has quite a bit of interesting history. The stained-glass windows are beautiful. It is free to enter but you can leave a donation. There is parking close by. Near the entrance, there is a War Memorial garden.
