The Buckfast Abbey Visitor Centre is the UK’s only medieval monastery to have been restored and used for its original purpose following its destruction during the reformation of Henry VIII’s reign. MET Studio designed an immersive visitor experience that tells the story of 1,500 years of Benedictine monks’ and nuns’ histories.

The whole experience is designed to take visitors on a journey away from everyday routine to understand and empathise with the Benedictine way of life. It is an organic, thought-provoking and completely immersive interactive experience, that features large multi-screen digital film, 3D models that come to life, touchscreens and ‘lean-in’ pods as well as areas to rest and ponder in peace.
