Located in the centre of the Cloister, the Labyrinth commemorates the Golden Jubilee of HM Queen Elizabeth II and was opened in 2002.
The Spiritual Journey
The Labyrinth forms a continuous path and represents the Christian idea of a spiritual journey.
On the way to the centre the pilgrim walks the way of the world, asking God's forgiveness for wrongdoing and seeking to make amends. On reaching the centre, there comes a moment for the pilgrim of opening up to the grace and love of God before returning along the path, seeking to follow in the way of Jesus Christ.
We invite you to walk the Labyrinth for your own purposes - a period of reflection, prayer or even just for fun!
Please note that the Labyrinth is currently closed for the winter season to allow for recovery, but see below for special opening times. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
