Beaulieu Abbey Church

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Cistercian monks founded the Abbey in 1204 on land given to them by King John. You can wander through the Cloisters and Herb garden where the monks grew aromatic plants for cooking and medicinal purposes including penny royal and lavender. Although some of the Abbey was destroyed during the reign of Henry VIII, visitors can still learn about the magnificent buildings of the Abbey, originally called Bellus Locus Regis - the beautiful place of the King.
