It is huge and majestic, but also very old! Royaumont Abbey has been created in 1228 and is not about to retire. After forced rest because of lockdown and Coronavirus, it returns: the abbey expects us since May 19, 2021 for beautiful walks through this historic monument and the park.
Set only 35 kilometers from Paris, Royaumont Abbey impatiently waits to reopen. A new one-way tour shows a tour and an uncommon discovery of the place and gardens. Thanks to this visit, you can admire the Cour des Novices – closed in 2020. The private part of the cloister – usually closed – is exceptionally open to visit, and the former Salle du Chapitre is now open to all.
Enjoying the 6.5-hectare park, visitors can roam around without bumping into other visitors. The bookstore and souvenir store has joined in as well, you can go home with a lovely souvenir of your outing. Treat yourself: all profits are to finance actions to help the heritage, children, and artists.
Facemask-wearing is recommended and signs enable to keep social distancing inside the building. Hand-sanitizer is available at the entrance and by the touch-screen pads.
Think about preparing your visit ahead, please buy your tickets online first. The good idea is to come at weekends and on public holidays: free shuttles from the Luzarches railway station take you to the Abbey. To enjoy them, ride the line H train leaving from Gare du Nord to Luzarches. Shuttles expect you there, and do not forget to book a ticket before.
To thank caregivers and their huge accomplishment, Royaumont Abbey renews last spring’s offer: by showing their professional cards, medical and paramedical staff can enjoy a free admission! The offer is to end on January 1, 2021, so, hurry up.
To unwind, enjoy the monument and nature after spending weeks locked up at home, meet at Royaumont Abbey.
