Newstead Abbey!

Newstead Abbey


A group photo of our English BA students in front of the impressive Newstead Abbey. We hope you all had a fantastic time!

Not entirely Masters related, but we do love to share what the rest of the English cohort has been up to! With the semester coming to an end, our third year (BA Hons) English students took to Newstead Abbey, the ancestral home of Lord Byron.

Formerly an Augustinian priory, then home to Byron along with many others, the Abbey is now open to the general public, who can visit and explore the historical abbey and it’s beautiful gardens and peacocks.

You can find out more about abbey, or plan a visit yourself on the Newstead Abbey Website.

Thank you to the staff who made this trip possible, and to Renée Ward for providing us with photos of this great day out. We hope you all enjoyed it!
