The 12th Century Abbey is now Malmesbury's parish church.

See the tomb of the first king of England, Athelstan the Glorious and stand on the site where saints since the 7th century have said their prayers.

Athelstan Museum has a wide ranging collection illustrating many aspects of Malmesbury history.

There are so many items that it is impossible to show all of them, or even a major part, so displays are rotated on a regular basis.

With over 1300 years of history, the first King of all England buried somewhere in the garden, two saints thrown down the well, and now one of the great gardens of the world. The spirit of the place shines through and could be the best garden visit you ever make.
