Missenden Abbey

Workshops for some of our programmes are held at Missenden Abbey Conference Centre, in Great Missenden. The conference centre is in the heart of the Chiltern Hills, but it’s only a five-minute walk to the train station with non-stop travel to London Marylebone, as well as bus links to High Wycombe and Aylesbury..

We welcome cyclists on site, and offer secure bike shelters for students, staff and guests. And, if you’re travelling by car, the Abbey is within easy reach of several motorways and main roads, including the M25, M40 and M4.
