The Bar Convent Living Heritage Centre

The Bar Convent is England's oldest living convent, founded in 1686 by sisters of the Congregation of Jesus.

Our Grade I Listed buildings today receive visitors from all over the world. We welcome those of all faiths and none to our chapel, exhibition, café, gift shop, beautiful garden and meeting rooms.

We are a friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic team who pride ourselves on making our guests feel welcome and enjoy their visit with us.
