At Bradwell Abbey

Due to the ongoing situation with the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre is partially closed until further notice, or until guidelines change. If you would like to hold a smaller, socially- distanced event, according to guidelines, we will be happy to help! And do get in touch about existing bookings.

We share the disappointment but have taken these measures to comply with government advice and in order to try and protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and the general public.

After the ‘I Dos’ in our rustic medieval Stone Barn, it’s time to celebrate! Party the night away with your guests in our 14th century Cruck Barn. With its lime-washed walls, exposed wooden beams, and fully licensed bar, it’s an unusual venue where we can help you to create the perfect atmosphere.

Steeped in history, home of a 12th century monastery, and set in 12 acres of picturesque and tranquil grounds, Bradwell Abbey is the ideal place for your special memories.
