A city festival on the origins of the cosmos? There's only one way to start – and that's with a BANG!
Park Abbey is a 12th century old heritage site. We strive to accommodate visitors of all abilities. However some rooms in the cloister are not accessible for people with a wheelchair like the library and the abbot’s residence.
As an alternative we offer a VR experience with sound and image.
