Kearsney Abbey

Kearsney Abbey

Kearsney Abbey - Autumn imageThe gardens at Kearsney Abbey are laid out as informal parkland around two ornamental lakes through which the River Dour flows. The abbey itself was demolished many years ago although the west wing remains and is now used as a café facility for visitors to the park.

The site is popular at all times of the year but especially in the summer time when the lawns become a favourite picnic site at weekends. A play area for children is available and the lower lake is used for model boating.

Enjoy walking around the gardens or relax watching the wildlife on the lake. Grass tennis courts at Russell Gardens adjacent to Kearsney Abbey. To book tennis courts call 01304 201211.
