Garden Description:

The Quiet Garden is available whenever Worth Abbey is open for visitors.

Benedictine spirituality has long been associated with respect for the local environment and appreciation of God's work in nature. Worth Abbey, a Benedictine monastery in West Sussex, has set aside a couple of acres as a Quiet Garden, available to anybody prepared to encounter God through prayer and reflection on nature and creation.

Worth Abbey Quiet Garden is in a rock garden around a large pond to the south of the buildings. The first Lord Cowdray, whose country estate this was before the monastery purchased it in 1933, had it planted with shrubs and alpine plants over a hundred years ago.

From the main car park there is well signposted trail of about 500m to the Quiet Garden.

  1. In a time of great personal stress, the Quiet Garden at Worth was a revelation to me and a source of huge comfort where I could literally feel the calming presence of God.
