Welcome to Vale Royal Abbey

Set amidst beautiful Cheshire countryside Vale Royal Abbey is a breathtaking backdrop to any occasion, and one that is sure to impress. Dating back to the 13th Century, the Abbey was lovingly restored in 1998 under the guidance of English Heritage. Retaining all of its historic splendour, it now provides a unique venue and one that truly exudes grandeur befitting any special occasion.

Vale Royal Abbey dates back to the 13th century when it was founded by Prince Edward, the future King Edward I. In 1263 – Prince Edward, the future King Edward I, was undertaking a sea voyage from France when his ship was caught in a terrible storm. He made a vow that if he came safe to land he would found an Abbey of unprecedented size and grandeur as a thanksgiving to God for saving him.

Now Present Day -  Nothing remains of the great church, though archaeological work has revealed many details of its structure. A stone circular monument, known as the ‘Nun’s Grave’, traditionally commemorates a fourteenth century Cheshire nun, Ida, who tended a sick Vale Royal abbot, and on her death was buried at the site of the high altar.
