Day Guests

Rest and renewal photoDay Guests are always welcome at St Benedict’s Centre. You can book an individual study/retreat room for £10. This includes hot drinks, the use of the beautiful grounds, the opportunity for private prayer in the pilgrim chapel. 

We have a full risk assessment which will be sent to people on booking.  

  1. When moving around the buildings or sitting in a meeting room guests are asked to wear face masks.
  2. Hand sanitiser is provided and guests are asked to use it on entering and leaving the building.
  3. Study rooms have kettles and facilities for making hot drinks. We cannot provide communal drinks or food.
  4. The Pilgrim Chapel can be used by an individual for private prayer but needs to be booked in advance.
  5. We are unable to join the Sisters for their offices at the moment because of building work.  Sext, None and Vespers are prayed by centre staff and guests most days in the Pilgrim Chapel

The cost for an individual study room is currently £10 because we cannot offer refreshments. Payment is by bank transfer on receipt of an invoice or on the day by card.

If you would like to book an individual room for a day please contact

We look forward to welcoming you back.
