Torre Abbey has undergone a three year restoration costing £6.5 million and visitors today can now view some of the most ancient and hallowed parts of the building. The Abbey is divided into 122 rooms, rambling over 20 different levels and with 265 steps. It consists of two Grade I listed buildings, four Grade II listed buildings, an historic garden and is a scheduled ancient monument of national importance.

The art gallery, which is now a main feature at the abbey has regular exhibitions, details of which can be found on their site, along with all sorts of events that are held here. While visiting enjoy the gardens and café that is run by Flying Aubergine who use fresh, organic and local food to produce light lunches and teas. The gardens are also undergoing a restoration programme with Kew Gardens supplying a number of new palms to enable the gardening team to reinstate the impressive Palm House.

Although Torre Abbey is on 20 different levels as part of their Heritage Lottery Funded restoration they have been able to vastly improve access to the vast majority of the Abbey. There is level access to the undercrofts, visitor entrance and cafe and ample disabled toilets. A new glass lift takes visitors to most other areas of the attraction including the galleries. There are guides available to give informal tours and can assist with a range of special requirements. Disabled visitors receive a concessionary entrance price and carers are free of charge.
