Have you ever been inside a real convent? This summer, we’re inviting you to explore!

Pick up one of our brand new Family Explorer Bags and enjoy an assortment of puzzles and activities as you make your way around England’s oldest living convent - and the fun doesn't stop when you leave. In your bag you'll also find crafts to take away with you and try at home: origami, summer spinners, colouring and drawing… the perfect way to keep the kids entertained.

Located close to Micklegate Bar, the Bar Convent is open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm with last admissions at 4pm. Explorer Bags are included in the normal price of admission (£5 per adult, £2 per child, £10 family ticket). You can also enjoy tasty snacks, light lunches and homemade cake in our award-winning café with private garden.
